Compact in the sun

It has been years since I have lived with a dog.  Still... I remember dogs asleep in the sun, sprawled to catch every ray.  The cat, at least my cat, does not sprawl.  Instead he sits... content, compact, a meditation in himself.

The cat
Compact in the sun
Eyes slit
Paws curled under
The picture of peace
In the one patch
Of living room sun
A meditation
In himself.
This is unlike
Dog meditation.
The cat
Compact in the sun
Shows a different
Sort of peace,
Intensely one
With himself.
