8 Dec


Nightfall puts another day to bed.
I meditate by the fire,
Letting judgments float up,
and away, in curls of smoke.

Beside me the orange tabby purrs.
The earth slowly turns toward tomorrow,
Drawing a blanket of stars around us.
We watch from the safety of our illusions.

    You really have great skill in capturing ‘other-worldliness’ the purring tabby cat somehow made it seem even more all the world is turning to the beat of a cat’s purr..Jae

    I have an orange tabby of my own, which made this imagery even more poignant. Thanks for a lovely post.
