When there is hope

A patient kitten

waiting next to his feed bowl

has reason for hope

confirmed by experience,

love’s presence felt in absence.

This is perhaps not a traditional approach to a tanka poem, but these are the thoughts that came to mind as I contemplated ‘hope’ and ‘wait’ for Silver’s Weekly Tanka Challenge #3.
