Yesterday it was windy and cold
and i stood at the window and watched this indigo glass bottle
letting itself be taken by the wind
and I saw a flash of joy
"When you do something,
you should do it with your whole body and mind;
you should be concentrated on
what you do."
It got done to 4 degrees last night
and Handsome found his way to us
and hunkered down in comfort
belly filled with chicken
and his body warmed by soft blankets
and a heated pad underneath them.
He did it with his whole body
And early this morning
I saw that he was snuggled way back in the igloo
and stirred when he heard me
and ventured out and stretched
that wonder wonderful cat stretch...
that we humans try to imitate
I warmed his chicken up in a pot with a bit of butter
.....so it would stay warm...
In this cold weather it freezes so fast.
He wolfed it down and then stared at me
but I was out of chicken
So I slipped him some dry food..and he took what was given
with his whole body
Then I saw that he moved into the sun and let it warm and nurture him
I wish he would let me own him
but I think he will not be owned
This too he does with his whole body....
