Equal Parts

She’s equal parts
tiger — predatory
and enchanting
— and kitten —
brazen and
delicate.
And she deserves
to be treated like
the queen she is.

  1. Such a wonderful choice of words!

    I especially love:
    “and kitten β€”
    brazen and
    delicate.” Because kittens are exactly that. They’re such reckless creatures, but when you hold them in your hands, you feel like you could accidently break them. πŸ™‚

    1. Yes, exactly. When I raised my kitten (she was only a few days old when she was orphaned) she was very snuggly. Now she’s about 4 months old and she’s very much living up to her Heisenberg name. πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜Š
