Cloud Kittens

Cloud kittens playing
cotton pawed and tummy tumbling
through the blue sky afternoon
mousing a storm.

Sneak, stalk, jump!
Caught in kitten teeth
 -pop!- like a balloon
goes the sun.

Thunder stomp stomps
stomps in from the west -
splashing through the puddles
till the whole sky's dripping wet

and cloud kittens shake
rain
from their whiskers

grey sky afternoon
mousing storms.

Absolutely captivated by the first stanza and smiled my way through it all! I agree - this should be illustrated!
