Poem: "Felis dendrophila" - The Wordsmith's Forge

Poem: "Felis dendrophila"
This poem was prompted by wyld_dandelyon and it's the first freebie of the day. I got to wondering if dryads always take human form ... or have other options.

Felis dendrophila

I once had a cat
whose coat was the color
of leaves in autumn,
her fur flowing in
a dozen soft shades of orange and brown
almost as if
one of the maples had somehow shifted itself
into feline form.

I love it when my poetry makes people think. *ponder* There are a bunch in this month's material that probably fit that category.

I'm happy to be of inspiration.
