My Cat Speaks Egyptian – July Stone #7

My cat speaks Egyptian.

She keeps her stories curled under her claws.

She writes them in hieroglyphic

on the back of chairs.

Alaya

About wrensong

I am a poet who collects stones. I am a wanderer of creek beds and forests, canyons and high desert who, coming home, sometimes finds words to tell the story. I am a companion with others in the search for Deep, Wild Soul. I shape containers in time and space for others to come together to write, to tell their stories, to hold each other in the telling. I am a grandmother and the companion of a cat named Alaya. I often travel out into open country with a man who calls himself Dunewalker who has hung his hammock in my heart.

  1. What a wonderful characterization! I know a houseful of cats like that!

    LOL! Oh, I think so. Unfortunately the upholstery fabric hides it all. Only a few threads.

    This post made me wonder about the creatures in our lives- and what they are saying to us and the world around them. Maybe she was writing a small stone.
