Agile

    death's shadow tango
    hidden 'til the music stops
    old cat in my arms

  2. Very poignant for me, particularly this month, as I have lost two -- one senior (14 yrs) and one youngster (2 yrs)!! Thank you for sharing. I enjoy reading your style.

    1. Old and ratty-looking but dearly loved - the music hasn't stopped for either of us yet.

  5. One might wish death not so agile, wish the arms and the kitty long life even if a bit slower at times.
