Weekend Theme – False Starts

Drifting off, kitten on my shoulder

Stroking her back as she kneads my neck

Warm breath in my ear.

Claws digging in protest

At my turning over

Purring begins again once comfortable.

Startled into awakening

Heart pounding in my chest

Unwelcome sounds outside.

Fully alert, I listen

Cleo rattling the security gate

Thunder rumbling in the dark sky.

Streaking through the house

Dog let in to her safe haven

Before plugs are pulled from their sockets.

Back between the sheets

Lucy purring on my shoulder

The thunder stops as suddenly as it began.
