When the sun sets – red – in the trees,
I lie in the new grass.
The cat comes, too.
Together, we sink into earth,
sniff the soft, green, blanket that holds us,
breathe in harmony.

I have almost always had cats. Each one is special as they have different personalities.
At present i have a tortoise shell and she is my best buddy.
I’m taking a well needed break from my stressful day at work and reading this as I do. I can feel my body relaxing as I read this. Then, just as I’m enjoying the full effect, I tense up again as I remember that my beautiful orange boy left this world a few weeks ago. Gosh how I miss him. So now I’ll read it one more time, this time as a prayer to my furry friend.
