An author’s poem – M.L.Merijanian
Spring Cup Runneth over; Grace is my God’s gift, Twilight my evening’s song. Gentle, peaceful and kind is his treasure in my heart. For Randy, Grace and Twilight.
Originally, my thoughts were to find a picture of a cat in the fog, since Grace and Twilight will never be out in the fog, and place Carl Sandburg’s poem, Fog along side. But, alas this has been done, and done well. Take a look at this blog and original art by Laurel Neustadter.
However, I do love this poem and wanted to share it with you here, on my Modern Cat Life blog. I have thought of it often over the years after seeing dense fog caught in the hills of the Missouri landscape, floating in the mountains of Virginia, Washington D.C. and Colorado, and sitting still over the rivers in Alabama. This poem haunts me in a good way.
The picture below is a birds-eye view from the second story of my Alabama backyard. I think this old man in the Chinese Tallow, “popcorn” tree may be reciting this poem as his picture was taken in the dense fog. What do you think?
Twilight, February’s cover kitty. I have the pleasure of loving her everyday, and on Valentine’s Day I asked her these questions.
Twilight, Do you think being a mommy has made you so loving?
” Yes, I had so many little ones, and they were all so important and easy to love. Being a loving mommy was my full-time job”
Twilight, what is your favorite way to show love today?
” I love, love, love time spent with my special person in the morning, grooming time runs right into kisses and love nudges. It really starts my morning off on the right paw!
Thank you Twilight for your unconditional love.
