Strange Thanks

On the last night of this holiday weekend, here’s a little poem—aka an excuse to share a cat painting! Cheers to gratitude—in all its expected and unexpected forms.

Strange Thanks

The cat stretches
awake after dreaming
of a bigger belly
to fill with birds.

I pet his fur ‘till
purring. Hope 
he’ll remember
how well he’s fed.

Blue jays fly past,
oddly silent,
in a blur of canny

PS: You can find prints of this and other cats here
