The Hunt

THE HUNT

things my cat taught me:
it’s all about the getting,
and not the having

 

Oh Daffodil

OH DAFFODIL

i put your flower
blossoming with grace and time
in my loving heart

 

The Snow Moon

THE SNOW MOON

the snow moon arrives
at february’s last stand
say hello to spring

 

House Cat

HOUSE CAT

curiosity
elegant agility
life as a house cat

 

Tiny House

TINY HOUSE

if not woodpecker
tapping on old oak, no sound
at the tiny house

 

Taco Cat

TACO CAT

look into my eyes
taco cat, spell it backward
look into my eyes

 

Singing The Blues

SINGING THE BLUES

old oak died today
its pulse stopped as lightning struck
birds singing the blues

 

Look-in & Gaze-in

LOOK-IN & GAZE-IN

look-in and gaze-in
a-wait-in for the next urge
‘tween must-have cat naps

 

Empty Porch Chair

EMPTY PORCH CHAIR

the old windmill spins
as howling westwinds rush by
an empty porch chair
