Leaping and Dancing

All should bound and sway

with knowledge of future days

better than the past.

 

Better than the past,

Will be this new dominion,

a saltating boon?

 

A saltating boon!

Inspire the weary minded,

with eyes uplifted.

 

With eyes uplifted,

light shines into the soul,

guiding restrained hope.

Envious Kitten – a haiku a poem

LIFE REMAINS

paw curls around door

playfully asking entry

jealous of her aunt

 

There’s a somewhat, or not so recent addition to the cat menagerie of the house. Actually, there are only two now. Things happen, and I’d rather not think about them. But Fluffy is still here, the daughter of Kitty, who helped me when she showed up one day and stayed for years. Now we have Stormy. She started at as a gray furball of a kitten, born to the bonkers, psycho cat you’d ever meet. She became a biter, or was already but became more so. Stormy on the other hand is the sweetest, if not the most ADD cat I’ve ever seen, but she is still mostly a kitten, not even a year yet. Not even close.

She has the nices markings. I’ve never seen the stripes go around the neck and chest before. When she lays on her side and stretches out, you see all her white hair with the dark gray stripes and it’s a shocking contrast, and she is the longest cat. Her legs are…she would be a runway model of cats if they had one, they’re that long. But she’ll let you pick her up and cuddle, her motor vibrating your chest and ear. Until she wants down. Her coat is the softest I’ve ever felt. It’s like stroking, well I can’t really think of anything this luxurious. It’s smooth, thick, not long, but not super short either.

All around an entertaining cat that figured out how to come inside for mealtimes with her Aunt Fluffy, not by blood. Fluffy is more like a mother than an Aunt. You can see Stormy watching her and copying everything she does. And Fluffy catches chipmunks and mice to show Stormy what her job is around the house, but Stormy just thinks the lifeless things are toys. She’s never tasted wild game so far.

Make sure to click on Fluffy’s photo to see her eye color.

Sweet Dignity – a Shi Rensa haiku a poem

SWEET DIGNITY

the world slips along
nothing trying to save it
but with grace, we can

but with grace, we can
fight against the flow of fate
slipping past tyrants

slipping past tyrants
decency defines the day
with decisions made

with decisions made
we slip into a new world
of known dignity

One Man’s Words, another Man’s Politics – a poem

I recently, as in the same day I wrote this post and Haiku, shared a quote from a book a social media platform. And individual there that is a Friend there responded. My initial quote and supporting comments were not politically charged, at least I didn’t think so. In fact, they were about the planet, the environment, and the role humans have played in the slow destruction of all of it. Nothing was untrue. It was simply my saying that God gave us the earth and all things upon it to be good stewards of and have dominion over. Dominion meaning to reign over. To reign over something means you must take care of it, not to abuse it. Apparently, that part of what I said either wasn’t agreed on, was skipped, or the quote from the book set the person off so much that nothing else was considered. I was quite surprised to see a comment at least twice as long as my original update. But, it gave me this post, this haiku, this haibun. God uses the oddest things to make good from. I should point out this person as well as others have taken some of my recent updates as meaning I am a Liberal, at least that’s the message I’m receiving. I’m not. I am conservative in most of my political leanings but as I believe all people do, I agree with some ideas on the other side of the political line. If anyone is 100% one thing…I get worried. No one party has the right answers to everything. And I get the feeling some of those from my more distant past cannot see the truth of that.
