A nap of my own

There's nothing quite so relaxed
as a cat on a couch,
dozing in the afternoon sun...
I'd hoped to catch her napping:
she looks so much like Chessie --
the pictures on the wall
in my grandmother's house,
from when my grandfather
worked for the railroad,
Chesapeake and Ohio --
but she heard me creeping up,
then rolled onto her back
and launched into this huge
impatient yawn, as if to say,
"I'm busy here; stop interrupting me."
I put the camera down,
and took a nap of my own.
