An Encounter To Ponder (illustrated by grandentity, Samwise)

For a while now,

each evening

a brown toad

hops up to

our sliding glass door

and peers in.

Every evening

our cat Murphy

waits for him.

She does not

cry or paw

at the door.

She just sits

 and peers back.

What if we humans

met those different

from us with

 equal curiosity?
