Silence felt in the morning
as a shaft of slanting light
falls across my sleeping cat
who as slept here through the night

secure in the knowledge she`s safe
rays of sun warming up her fur
as she stretches out her long limbs
settling down with a throaty purr

within this shaft the dust dances
like it's suspended in mid air
almost as if a torch shines down
upon my bed then on my chair

watching the bright slant of light
slowly creeping across our world
as time moves gradually by
she remains stretched,  her tail curled

as the sun rises higher
this beaming slant of light moves on
along with my dozing feline
until it`s at its peak and gone
