  Cyan Cat

Teal:

Creature to creature –

I know not which way

Your tail is twitching,

In my favour or your own. 

Turquoise:

Not pet, not kept

But here – despite.

We – two – chose to live

Side by side.

Uncommon, common company.

Verdigris:

We rub each other,

Sometimes the wrong way.

Lacking a language

Between our needs.

Blue:

Seeking together a space

Where we – two – can fill

that common, unspoken

Creature shaped

Place in between.
Another attempt:
Sea blue cat


Languid like fluid

She pours herself out

Along the covers

Pooling into a puddle

Of sunshine

Evaporating into the liquid light.
– Krina Ulmer
