"Black, White, and a Touch of Red"

I just love kitties.  I had a fun time creating this digital art journal page.

"Here Kitty, Kitty"
All day I inevitably encounter a cat here and there
In the shadow of trees or out in the sun, around 
the pile of fallen leaves; 
I catch sight of him, deeply engrossed like a bee, 
with his own self
Embedded in the skeleton of white soil
Having successfully spotted some bones 
of fishes somewhere; 
But still, nevertheless, he scratches at the trunk 
of the Krishnachura tree
All day he moves about stalking the sun. 

Now he shows up here
The next moment he is lost somewhere.
I spot him in the autumn dusk playing around 
As if, with his white paws, he is patting the supple body 
of the saffron sun; 
Then he nets up the tiny balls of darkness with his paw
And spreads them throughout the world. 
-Vachel Lindsay-



Created for an art challenge at Take a Word.

  1. This scene takes me back to my early married years. Thanks for the trip down memory lane! I enjoyed the poem as well. Since two cats allow us to share their home with us, as cats will, it resonated!
