Feline creatures slithering about

Getting under foot blocking your route

Sashaying fur all over the room

When feeling low they can lift your gloom


Sweet little things curled in your lap

Sandpaper tongue like a venus fly trap

Beautiful eyes that stare agape

Mysterious presence inside your landscape


Stalking big ones ruling the day

Jumping and chasing and subduing prey

Fleet fast afoot the fastest around

Beautiful coats patterns abound


Long a great source of companionship

They provide solace when you have a blip

Creatures of pure independent means

Following commands not one of their scenes


These wonderful beasts serve us so well

Having a few might make your life swell

When you look for respite or retreat

Go frolic with cats they’re often very neat


Have you ever had cats?

What was your experience like?

Did you find the cats fun? Engaging? Curious?

Entertaining? Humorous? Diverting? Helpful? Healing?

I have always been a seeker, always looking for the answers to what seekers ponder. I can remember Dr. Maxwell Maltz and Psychocybernetics; Dr. Carl Rogers On Becoming a Person. Moving through my legal training and practicing law the focus was always about people and how to better their lives. All that searching, reading, studying and introspective work culminated in this collection of daily readings for seekers.

My work in the world has progressed from fighting legal cases to mediating divorces to helping people understand the essentials of relationship and collaborating to these poems. How can we collaborate effectively and work with each other in harmony to create the world we seek. How can we mindfully enable this world to become a place that works for all.

My prayer is that through introspection using these poems as a guide we can all grow together in making the world the Heaven on Earth we all aspire toward.
