photo of a Abyssinian cat sitting on a cane table, looking through the cracks

Mundanely mornings,
watching a cat look through cracks—
purring pondering.

Watching trees grow up—
zen life of a sitting duck,
waiting for nothing.

where the old barely survives,
vibrant new life thrives.

Dead feelings

How do the dead feel
when nature rises again
reclaiming its space

Two lives from same roots,
balancing each other out—
go opposite ways.
