Hello, Kitty

 

(an image of a tiger)

 

Isn’t he amazing?

I say he because the caption says so

I have no trouble believing that

The female is amazing

He sits among the roots and shadow

Of the tree

 

Resting or waiting?  Is he

Hungry or in love or meditative?

Is he tired?

 

What will happen next?

What happened?

I think he lay there for a long while,

A study in stillness

He stayed until he decided

What he wanted next
