Lazy Sleeper

Are you the lazy sleeper
That lounges on my windowsill
Eyelids closed upon the dawn
Stirring only when the wind
Carouses you
A menace to my flowerbed
You terrorize the birds
You've made enemies
With the squirrels
The world is a bowl of yarn
And your the cat's meow
Lazy sleeper

Great lines throughout this poem! I like "the world is a bowl of yarn" especially. I can picture the poem's speaker bending down to have this "conversation" with the lazy sleeper. This one brings a smile to my face this evening:)

Nice way to describe a cat!! How often do I wish I was one....lucky creatures, aren't they?!

Cats..I love them! Choice words for these guys! We don't have squirrels -do they really give them a bad time? We have mongoose.. but they don't cross each others path? I'm done with one flower bed and I know exactly what you mean..I don't want them in there!
