Queen of Sheba

Her soft belly, furred, disguised the quiver 

A tremble, sensed not seen, fluttered  within her, 

Four tiny movements pawed inside 

Our smokey grey feline bride. 

Blissful she purred them a reassurance 

She stretched and paused, content and full 

Patiently poised to proclaim the arrival. 


“Brief: This weeks Dverse quadrille challenge hosted by whimsygizmo was to craft a 44 word poem inspired by and using the word ‘quiver’

“Insight: our lovely lady-like Burmese cat, surprised us with an unexpected bundle. We kept one and 18 years later he is still soldiering on.
