Looking through a window, resident unknown.
Seeking something that can not be found,
A cat on the window sill looks content.
Is it a trap, this scene of tranquility?
The creature is looking into the room,
Seeking something that can not be found.
A light tap would stir this peaceful portrait
The second the heart takes a breath,
Seeking something that can not be found.
The creature would jump from the tap,
The vase would fall and break,
Seeking something that can not be found.
The flowers would be thrown about wildly on the floor,
Arrangement no more, calm no, serenity lost,
Seeking something that can not be found.
It just is.
