The pink & lilac dusk

The pink & lilac
Dusk brings
Me to
You
On
Other
Evenings

Our activities

The games

We’d play

Maybe we
Didn’t take it
Seriously
Enough
Or maybe
We took
It all
Too
Seriously

Hospital visits
By magic
We survived
Many things

9 lives
9 stray cats
To keep
Alive
Only one
Comes
Inside

On the balcony
The squirrels
Hide
Peanuts
They find
& the cats
Watch
Them
Curiously
&
Admiringly
As neighbours
On 2nd
& 3rd floors
Giggle & laugh
From inside

These moments

I remember

Through

Many

As some of the coziest

Among the ones

Which are cherished
