Black Queen Guardian

A humorous poem about an unusual and fierce Hurricane Katrina rescue cat.

Drawing by Denny Lyon Copyright 2008

Black Queen Guardian

fast furious jumps a tiny

dark dot

circles, sniffs, declares herself content
the patio chair owned in the moment

her growl:
loud, fierce, frightening
front claws ripped out when young
tiny but fearless, intimidating

Hurricane Katrina kicked her homeless
downtrodden, nearly dead

warrior kitty found her way to me
wild, slow to trust again
she intensely adopted me
restored to health after two years

The Guardian Queen lives well now

warrior kitty guards me fiercely
warrior kitty patrols the yard
warrior kitty secures the house

The Guardian Queen rules
warrior kitty has three thrones

I'm well loved

Miss Black Pearl aka warrior kitty
