Oreo's Memorial Stone

Today, I got her name, Oreo painted on her memorial stone.

                                          Beloved Kitty of Mary Lee, Bob & Amaliya
                                          July 1995 - July 24, 2015

The stone had been place on July 24, 2015 and I'd written out what I wanted to paint on the stone.  It was the right day to paint all of it on the stone today.

The stone surface was irregular and the painted letters look child like.  It makes me happy to have painted it in her honor.  She was such a special cat.

Her grave is located on the east side of our house.  Many cats in the neighborhood come around and pay their respects.

May you rest in peace, my dear kitty girl, Oreo.  You're good energy is around us always.

Autumn Light

The leaves are just turning in our beautiful Winona area.  I was on campus at Winona State University  last evening and the light shining on half of the Performing Arts Center was quite amazing.

This Poem Belongs To You

This poem
    belongs to you
        and is already finished,

it was begun years ago
         and I put it away

knowing it would come 
     into the world
       in its own time.

In fact
you have already read it,
     and closing the pages of the book,

you are now abandoning the projects
  of the day and putting on
    your shoes and coat
         to take a walk.

It has been long years 
   since you felt like this.

You have remembered 
  what I remembered 
     when I first began to write.
