In Passing


WEEKEND REFLECTION

IN PASSING

Seen in passing on a bright Spring day.
The view of the trees across the way.
The lines on the window causing division,
With almost mathematical precision.
A little nothing, but rather pleasing.
Just in passing I was image-freezing.

Seen at Sharp's Nursery this-morning.

FOR MARGARET
(who likes cats.)

Very superior, very glossy,
A little aloof and probably bossy,
Here you see the Nursery Cat,
Very self-satisfied, almost fat!
She lies on the counter and she purrs,
Among the seedlings and secateurs.
Lying near the office clutter,
As round and smooth and soft as butter.
I stroked her head; she squirmed with delight.
(Probably only being polite!)
She's in a tray; she just fits in.
I wonder.....is she 'Out' or 'In'?

I love your reflection shot, Brenda and LOVE the cat in a basket. What a talented lady you are to churn out the poems without seeming to even "break out in a sweat". I'm trying to get an article written for a South African magazine and have three others on the back burner. But the first one (most important - time wise) won't come out ! I popped over here for some literary inspiration. OK so back to my keyboard. Have a wonderful day. Jo

Definitely interesting, with the reflection and the patterns on the glass. The cat is too cute, they can make themselves happy anywhere!

Thank you for your poem - if you pet every obliging cat thinking of me I shall be happy!
