still I rise, leap, float, fly



Taking specific aim,


I crouch, gather muscle power,


And spring-sail up,


Levitating with ancient


Incomprehensible


Feline finesse, unquestioning


Of nature's bestowed eminence -- my flying and landing abilities, assumed, and deployed for choice placement of myself, in winter sunshine bursting through a south window, warm despite single-digit temperatures. 


Basking in
high places,
an apt activity
and fulfillment
of my opulent, purring presence
in this place in the world.
 
Now.
