A Lovely Night

It’s a lovely moonlit night. There’s a gentle breeze, the kids are asleep and my wife’s here beside me; it’s almost romantic.

There’s the next door cat trying again to climb the fence next to my tree. Stupid cat, doesn’t he realise the difference between a short fence and the high branch of a tree? He’s never going reach us, we birds are too smart for him.

Well, I guess we should go to bed or we won’t be able to wake up early tomorrow morning; after all, it’s always the early bird that catches the worm.

    (makes me think of a line from Woody Allen, “And the lion will lie down with the lamb, but the lamb won’t get much sleep…” as I suspect your protagonists will not)

      I think they get good sleep; after all, they are ‘high up on the branch, out of the cat’s reach.’

  5. Dear Bernadette,

    Cute and clever take on the prompt. I’d still be wary of that cat. 😉

    Shalom,

      Thanks Rochelle. I’m​ hoping that the cat gets something else to attract his attention in the meantime.
