Sudden Spring

Day 55 prompt: spring

 

Sandy sleeps

dreaming

of catnip or

a goldfish freed

from its bowl

 

Shiver …

 

Sandy stirs

ears twitching

at a disturbance

I don’t even

see or hear

 

Stretch …

 

Sandy starts

suddenly upright

head near tail

her spine an

inverted U

 

Spring!

 

Sandy shoots

pink padded paws

to trap the cricket …

who didn’t stand

a chance

 

Swallow.
