Cinderella Syndrome 12

alley cat
his bold stare as he slips through
the wrought iron gate

"Miaow", which really meant, "Cheer up! You have something neither of your stepsisters have and that is beauty." It was quite true. Cinderella, even dressed in rags with a dusty gray face from the cinders, was a lovely girl. While her stepsisters, no matter how splendid and elegant their clothes, were still clumsy, lumpy and ugly and always would be. [Ivy Joy's Fables and Fairy Tales]

I like your haiku. I can totally see this alley cat. Probably because they--and their hard stares--exist the world over.

Okay, I'll take a stab at this Cinderella thing. Every girl should have, at least once in her life, a night of pure romance.

summer stars so bright
I'm your destiny, he said
and she believed him
