Of Quilts & Killing Fields
Come spring they'd stretch
between birch and pine,
dappled light dancing lovingly
upon tufted ornamental stitches;
billowing sails filled with earthly fragrance.
lay twisted and mangled;
a killing field begun
by a twitching tail
and a desire to please.

As a child, every spring my cat couldn't wait to spend more time outdoors and start hunting - he was always so proud to show me his efforts... I don't deal with this now as my three cats are all permanent indoor cats.
