Tiger’s Tail

On soaring wings
Her heart flies above neon lights
To catch fireworks

Her hands are fatigued
Holding tight to Tiger’s tail
Avoiding the teeth

She sweeps ill fortune
Out of her body tonight
For the smile of the Cat

NB – 2011 will be the Year of the Rabbit in the Chinese Zodiac. In the related Vietnamese Zodiac the Rabbit was translated as the Cat because of the sound of the symbol – meo. Source ~ Wikipedia
