26 of 27: Drifting

Sitting
Drifting
On an ocean
Of thought

Flowers
Are better
Fuzzy cat
Purrs
Soothing relief
To strained

Muscles
Neurons
Systems
Burdened
Beyond normal

Limits
Hard to handle
Time spread
Too thin

Taxing
Energy
Invisible internal
Batteries
Lose power
Fatigue sets in

Mental ocean's
Waves
Crash on empty
Thought
Shores

Empty space
Quietly
Soothing
Frayed
Nerves

Invisible
Sunshine
Warms muscles
From within

This mind
Finds vacation
Inside
Whenever
Wherever
Possible

IT simply
Must
BE
Because
Route
To distant
Beaches
Is not
Yet
Possible

Drifting
In the
Mind
Must
Suffice
For now

~ Treasa Cailleach

May you have a vacation when it is needed. May you find ways to honor your own needs no matter what life brings you. May you care for yourself enough to keep going in life. May you know that the divine loves and supports you in all that you do.

Om Shanti

20 of 27: Over Stimulated

1
Overstimulated kitty
2
Cat's paradise
3
people
4
hands petting

Center of attention
Kisses and headbutts
Flop
Tail curls
Belly up
Drooling
And purring
Loud enough to
Wake a baby
Maybe not enough to
Wake the dead
Roll left
Roll right
Make sure every inch
Of fur
Gets attention

Un oh
Kitty is leaving
Where are you going

Oh he's back
A snack he had
Like a cigarette
After a romp
In the sack

Silly kitty
Overstimulated
Well fed
Cozy comfy
Off to sleep

To be in an
Overstimulated cat's
Paradise
*Sigh*

17 of 27: Sittin’ Pretty

Purrrrouw
A soft paw reached out
Pet me his eyes say
I luvvv you
Look at me
I'm sittin' pretty
So soft
So fluffy
Perched like
A little plump
Bastet
One pet is simply not enough
Like Lays potato chips
A continual stream
Of double the pleasure
One happy critter
Being pleased by
It's human
The human
Pleased by
Critter affection
All it took
Was a little
Sittin' Pretty

15 of 27: Fireside Play Doh

Snap crackle
Squish squash
Mommy mommy
That you
Smush smash
Globs become
Pretend snowmen
Tiny
Medium sized
Who knew
Snowmen were
Green
Roll pat
Now a family
Of worms
Mommy daddy
Brother
Doh
Can't forget
Big sis too
Brother
Cuddles with mom
Now that
Jumping batteries
Have run low
Crackle pop
Warmth spreads
All around
And deep
Into heart-space
Flame filled
And memories made
Family
Sighs of delight
For a cold
Winter's night

Storm damage.

I tried to take my usual walk around the pond between shifts and trees were downed from last night’s storm.

I climbed over and around 3 of them to lose to the 4th because of too plentiful poison ivy. I’m already treating a large patch of poison oak on my arm from Katherine having brought me a leaf and smearing it on the inside of my elbow. I just didn’t want to risk another large patch of itchy rash.

Anyway, since I couldn’t do my normal laps of  walking, I took a bunch of pictures, including a whole bunch of pictures of the Great Blue Heron which has returned to the pond for this season. There is also a Green Heron but I couldn’t get close enough to it for pictures, last week I managed a couple of blurry ones. I tried to catch fish in my pictures but the water has darkened and I don’t think I caught them very well. Last week I caught a few fish, so I’ll post both rounds of pictures. I was buzzed by a Vulture several times and caught it in one of the Heron pictures, it was really a good albeit exercise free lunch break.

Then I went to work early to sit on their pub patio which has a wonderful overhang for shade. I watched a mother Red House Finch feed her babies. There were 4 nests in view, but only one momma was brave enough to visit with me sitting watching. It was a good relaxing moment.

May you have good bird watching and time in nature. May you be blessed with awe and wonder of all the beautiful creatures around us. May you have good relaxing moments and enjoy the weather as much as possible. May you have good days mostly.

Om Shanti
