Feline creatures slithering about

Under foot blocking your route

Sashaying fur all over the room

Feeling low they lift gloom


Sweet things curled in your lap

Sandpaper tongue a Venus fly trap

Beautiful eyes staring agape

Mysterious presence in your landscape


Stalking big ones rule the day

Jumping chasing subduing prey

Fleet fast afoot fastest around

Beautiful coats patterns abound


Long a great source of companionship

Providing solace when you have a blip

Creatures of pure independent means

Obeying commands not in their genes


Wonderful beasts serving us well

Having a few makes your life swell

Looking for respite or retreat

Frolic with cats they’re very neat


Do 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.
