Hello, Kitty

Hello, Kitty

 

(an image of a tiger)

 

Isn’t he amazing?

I say he because the caption says so

I have no trouble believing that

The female is amazing

He sits among the roots and shadow

Of the tree

 

Resting or waiting?  Is he

Hungry or in love or meditative?

Is he tired?

 

What will happen next?

What happened?

I think he lay there for a long while,

A study in stillness

He stayed until he decided

What he wanted next

The Act of Reading

The Act of Reading

 

It’s amazing how

Letters on the page

Keep us going

How the, which has little

Meaning, is essential

 

I look at the page, and

It matters

You find me there, too

And everyone who

Has meant something to you

And me

 

However it’s configured

Nowadays,

We go to words on pages

And they matter

The secrets of all time and space

Are there

The words wait

Like magic spells

Invocations standing by

 

Turn to them

Whether paper or electrons

Our salvation waits

And other stories

Canciónes de Oro

Canciónes de Oro

 

How does the song

Go,

 

My boat is so small,

And your ocean is

So big

 

(Translated)

 

Extraordinary image

Of a strenuous

Hope for

 

Amazing grace

 

Cantan ustedes,

Queridos

 

Please sing, my loved

Ones
