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.
