                Family Cat

                Outside
                skies are bleak
                and grey with rain,
                but here you curl
                in a rattan basket
                meant for
                flowers,
                hug yourself
                like a soft pillow
                and sleep like
                a baby,
                utterly lost
                in love
                with self.

Gilbert, I don't see anything wrong with this...I think it's nice.

Just wondering though, shoudln't ir be -ing for "hug" and "sleep", i.e.'hugging' and 'sleeping'.

gilbert,
even if i am not a cat lover, i like the way you describe the cat and its bo-chap attitude.

i think this piece needs no reworking.
