bury my past

create my song

for as grapes turn to wine

ashes must reach dust

for as life folds old

in birds who fly low

in eyes tired then sleepy

in a dry creek beds flow


oh resurrect the grey

My cat has no wish to experiment by living in Walden Pond because he has the outdoors any time he meows to be let out. He bakes in the sun during the winter and in the summer months hides behind the lavender bush to keep his furs from getting singed.

Through it all, he has to endure the mockery o... Read more of this blog post »
