Defining Pulse

In this world of speed and impatience,

where to wait a minute

is to wait a minute too long,

moving slow and taking your time

is the ultimate rebellion.



Day 100 – And Here I Am

If you had told me

I would keep up this routine

of exercise and

reach a benchmark of one hundred

days, I’d have asked if

you’d been drinking, but that day

has arrived and here I am.


To Be Continued ?

“If cats have nine lives,

then we’ll surely meet Elaine

again. Do you think

we’ll recognize her,” she asked,

then quickly said, “Toby will.”


Day 99 -The Pause That Didn’t Refresh

After two days of

not doing, I found it

a little harder to do.

but I gathered myself up

and began again.



A Sad And Sacred Watch

We knew the time was

getting close when our beloved,

elderly cat, Elaine,

suddenly began seeking

out solitary,

dark, enclosed spaces to rest.

But in the end she

chose to die in the open,

curled up next to her

old dog friend, Toby, who kept

a sad and sacred watch.


Morning Conversation

Sun met Frost today

and they had a sparkling talk

about what’s to come.
