Post-Jurassic: Now Prey

Captured this guy on the inside of our den’s sliding screen door.  He was about 8 inches long.  Our 2-yr-old cat, Logan, catches and brings home up to three of these a day.  He lets them loose for a bit, continues to chase them, and eventually kills and partially eats them.  Fortunately for some of these guys we are able to rescue and resettle them to a safer environment.  But our neighborhood is abundant with lizards and birds.  (He caught a pigeon today.  Feathers everywhere in my tool shop, where our cat’s access door is located.)  Such is the hunter side of our loving pet.  

Golden Routine

always
as if for the last time
her daily stroll she takes

to admire the beauty
speaking to her
which never gets old

unlike her own life
now crown’d with gray hair
and cheerful reflections
that sometimes lower her spirits

still
her heart blows a kiss
and smiles farewell
till the next tomorrow

Dreamcatcher

Fishgathering
inside Cauldron
of Reverie

Visions
some replay’d
in exact morsel
but briefly
at times
‘twixt months
e’en years

blown There
all Dreamers’ senses
in black and white
sometimes color

into feeling…

… Really There

till Sleep
thy breath
be lost

(Dreamcatcher craft by my neighbor, Etti)
