Quiet Moments Like This One...

From For Ellipsis

Cats Sleep Anywhere
By Eleanor Farjeon

Cats sleep anywhere, any table, any chair
Top of piano, window-ledge, in the middle, on the edge.
Open draw, empty shoe, anybody's lap will do.
Fitted in a cardboard box, in the cupboard with your frocks.
Anywhere! They don't care! Cats sleep anywhere.

It's such a calming sight. My boy, who had been watching the pouring rain out the window not 5 minutes earlier, is now sleeping quietly, while standing up. He seems a bit fluffier in these moments, and my heart just feels happy watching him. All is right with the world.
