Have this habit of

Appearing just when

I forget something

I’m not paying attention

I get pulled under by my fears

I’m not just spending enough

Time appreciating what I have

Contemplating or just letting

Things go to where they

Know they belong

This little cat we have

Has a sense for that

When it’s time for me

To reel myself in

Reduce the problems

Of the world

Or of health old age

Relationships bills

She appears asleep

On my lap as if magic

We’re not sleight of hand

And it’s all there

Everything I need to know

A centering a wanting for balance

In her world so she

Balances mine ironing out

All the wrinkles

Soft little thing

Any touch just adds to it

The whole thing

The wonder of life

Up close and personal

I defer to this

Other so called important things

Can be put off for awhile

Maybe a lot of other

Important things aren’t

All that valid and can

Just be scratched off the

Ever growing list

It’s a whole different state
