Theme: Superstition

Superstitious Me

Who can ever explain
the origin of superstition
and its rationale...?
In spite of education in science
I can hardly be convinced
and perhaps many are in the same state
to hesitate to go ahead
if an innocent well meaning cat
crosses our path!
The other day it was different...
Barely ten feet ahead of me
spotting a small cat
crossing the road from right to left
I applied the brake
to allow the little thing to cross over safe.
But the little pussy
stopped in the middle,
perhaps read my mind
and instead of crossing the road, went back...
When our eyes met
I could see a smile
on the face of the cat,
it was not to jeer,
but on 'joy of giving' week
to dispel my fear and give me cheer...
