Cat and Laser

I saw the light - a glimmer of something wonderful,
Beckoning me like a flame for a moth, 
Invoking my attention and sense of wonder,
Moving in a way that seemed to intentionally entice me.

I leapt to its location, craving its brilliance,
Wanting to catch and hold it,
But it was gone, bouncing just beyond my reach.

This time, I pounced before it could escape.
But when I lifted my paws, it had disappeared.

Over and over, the light appeared, and then escaped.
But I kept chasing it, because I knew it was for me.
