Up, down, here, there! - and then
sleeping, tucked in by the sun,
lost in dreams of earth and cosmos.
Worshipped by ancients, with them preserved;
My lap reserved for the one I adore.
Written for dVerse Poets Pub - Poetics, hosted this week by Marina Sofia. Her prompt, Animal Symbolism or Antics, invited us to write a poem about an animal. Mine is written in the poetry form, Etheree, which consists of ten lines of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 syllables.
