Cats

Furry purry

Stretching yawning licking

Full of feral secrets

Sniffing sneaking snapping

Silent sly

Spies

I assume diamante refelcts the shape both physical and word count 1-2-3-4-3-2-1.
not sure about the idea of shape in poetry, too many compromises. The line "full of feral secrets" is sharp though!

Quite descriptive this and to the point - I'm reasonably fond of cats except not having one myself it makes my garden a fair target for all the neighbourhood ones who like sprainting everywhere including up my front door

A 'diamante' poem, quite a delightful 'form', with many variations acceptable.
