Waiting (troiku)

waiting
window gazing she knows
I’m here for the night

waiting
sleeps in her five beds
knowing I`ll come home

window gazing she knows
twenty-four buses pass
then I waltz in

I’m here for the night
never a doubt that I am
her night companion

Mid-morning calm (haibun)

I’m in the country this week minding my son’s dogs and cat. Heidi (German Shepherd) and Mia (Golden mix) are sisters and they are like two giant peas in a pod. They play together, sleep together, eat together but compete to get petted of course. And GiGi, the Persian could care less about those giants. She does her own thing. She loves jumping on the kitchen counter and drinking water straight from the tap and pleads with me daily. My son warned me NOT to do that since it took him months to have her finally drink out of a bowl. Since he leaves the kids for ten to twelve hours, he would not want her to dehydrate. It is so tempting  though to indulge the little thing, like Nana giving too many sweets to the grands…that is exactly how I feel with these pets.

It is a long trek to get to work for me but the peacefulness here is palpable.

Maybe if I get closer with this loud monster, she’ll run off.

Guess GiGi is a very relaxed cat. Maybe it is the country air.  Let’t get a bit closer, that’ll scare her.1063605_406708396111087_2046750192_n

Nope…sheeesh!!! she must be a Yoga (Yogi?) Guru or Mindfulness Master or something…gotta get her over at my place to teach some relaxation to Bette. GiGi you are the Calm of Calmness, the serene of serenity.  You rock, kitty:)
