Four of my cats remain indoor muses
Only one now ventures outside.
He is a tiger cat, who was once a feral
But he is gentle and loves my company.
Our dog travels in both realms.
Both animals had shunned each other…
Until something changed–a miracle.
One day their wariness of each other…
It was forgotten.
The feral cat and dog greeted each other…
Fear floated away and they soon became friends
There is no more flinching when they touch.
As they head into their twelfth year
My muses have gained a new best friend…
They now rush to greet each other in joy.
They both sit by me…
Keeping me company in the peace
Encouraging me in creation
Keeping each other safe.
My wise muses brave the trails with me
It’s our peaceful world together
The three of us walk into the forest’s soul
Given a bond only found in love.
A love that I hope can reflect into the world.
The horizon offers me the world.
It rolls out into forever
Like a tree-covered carpet
Into the mountains.
It is a glance into possibilities
Of abundance offered to all
The horizon gives my soul the hope…
Of what life can offer… if we only believe.
