Ode to Age by LuRain Penny

I am not pristine. I am weathered.

My flesh bears the mark of all my indulgences and injuries.

Though it was I who stumbled, my body fell.

 

I love my carriage now.

It has borne me along all these years.

I know it, recognize it as mine, am grateful for its service.

 

A home for my soul, twisted no longer.

Came through the dark night, my starling, to shine.

From a photo taken at the Seaside Aquarium, Oregon Coast.

This fellow and I fascinated each other.

Inter-species encounters are the most thrilling #imo.

Look and you’ll see Nature paying attention to you.

My Travel Kitty

my-travel-kitty-by-codifyer

Indigo adopted us 10 yrs ago when our big Lab Cody passed away.

He had been abandoned for some time before because we’d seen him out and about in our neighborhood.

He waited on our back porch for months while we grieved, we never noticed him.

Then one day, driving around the back, I saw him. Sitting hunchy on the step.

He looked so sad.

A few minutes later on my journey, I saw a homeless man, sitting in a bus shelter.

The first thought to occur was – He reminds me of the kitty!

Cat food was bought that very day.

The process of introducing him into our household ( as a temporary visitor at first ) was begun.

LuRain was terrified of him.

She was quite put out over his intrusion into her bereavement.

But that’s another story….

He is the Love of my Life, a brave and amazing little Man.

Thanks,
