a gentle day

by Raj Arumugam

easy and smooth the day
comes and goes
like a falling leaf
or a graceful cat on the roof;
perhaps like drops of dew
drip
drip
drip
gently into the lake of time below;
dawn
morning
midday
afternoon
evening
sunset
dusk
twilight
night
and I'm left in quiet
and the cat-day lies curled in my lounge
