Emotography – Week 26/2016

 Rara ~ 2006 – 2016

Grief

no orange cat walking
shadowing me
no orange cat stalking
through silver birch trees
no orange cat sitting
waiting for tea
no orange cat purring
affectionately

the grass will grow tall
under the trees
earth being nourished
by all that you were
marked by stone softly laid
to farewell the sun

    Pets certainly become an important part of your life and it does hurt when they’re not around any more. Lovely poem and the idea behind it.

    Lovely post, and such a sweet face. Our TiggerCat passed away a few months ago. The mornings remain a little empty without his meowing for breakfast.

      Yes, CJ, the garden just won’t be the same without her. Sadness for your loss.

      She did have a very happy life, sleep, eat, sleep, eat, little walk, scruffles and pats.

        We have so much to learn from our animals …. Simple small pleasures can bring content if we let them

          I begin to believe (in the midst of my life) that small pleasures are the most satisfying thing there is. They are solid, can happen every day, and allow us to learn how to appreciate that we need to enjoy everything more.
