Nothing Ordinary Here

Mulling the magic, ordinary days…
Do cows ruminate on the grass they graze?
When birds are soaring high in clear blue skies,
The essence of the moment fills my “eyes”.
A Day’s magic distilled into minutes —
Cat’s curiosity knows no limits.
He leaped up on the tree, claws extended.
The moment didn’t last, but ’twas splendid!
Did the magic linger in the cat’s mind?
We find greatness in daily tasks well mined.

Please Accept These Few Lines … [A Harper Lee Letter Reinvented]

As you’re growing up, always tell the truth.
A cat is an inevitable sleuth.
Do not harm others and do not think YOU…
A dog will bite off more than he can chew.
You’re NOT the most important thing on Earth.
Magpies horde bright bits, for pleasure not worth.
You can, you should, look someone in the eyes.
Will a rabbit contemplate the Sun Rise?
No better, no worse, certainly equal —
Living your life as if there is no sequel.


(Harper Lee wrote TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD.)
