The Cat

Sunday Muse BlogSpot #55  For Carrie’s prompt


The Cat
“I have lived with several Zen masters — all of them cats.” – Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment

She was a thin black and white feral cat,
extremely pregnant,
just looking for a safe place to birth her kittens.
Five little bits of fur,
in an abandoned cooler in my garage.
I am saddened by the thoughts
that this is the place she picked for safety.

    But thank heaven she found YOUR property, where she is safe. Cats are smart that way. Poor kitty.

    The sense of having found a home rings from those last lines.

    It is sad but also hopeful that she came to your garage. She was blessed to have made that choice.
