30 Poems, 30 Days 2021: Watching Through The Window (Day 29)

You see her watching through the window
A rescue kitten that arrived a month ago
No one knew where she came from
No one came for her, only you
She enjoyed her new small home for her reign
A warm bed, fresh water, food, and toys
At least that’s what you thought
So why is she watching through the window?
There’s nothing special outside, no one’s walking by
No birds in the growing oak tree, no cars driving by
The street is empty, but she staring right at it
Is she expecting someone to come by?
Aren’t you enough? Or does she want to leave?
You’ll stay waiting along with her
Until one day, you both find a cat appear
Through the window, she scratched to get closer
The cat looked like a future version of her
Is it her mother or another?
You take her outside and they meet in your yard
They touch their furry faces together
She looks back at you, is it time for her to leave?
Eventually she returns back to you, and the cat too
That’s when you realize you have room for another
Now your rescues are not alone, neither are you
