Crash! Month comes to an
untimely end- next month will
die even younger.

Pineapple plunged in
kale slurry- wishing it was
an upside down cake.

Caught in life's web, is
our fate to be a spider's
dinner? Time will tell.

Ten minutes each side,
quarter hour cooling, cold drink-
cat sunbathing guide.

Foggy sea foam tang,
morning air clears hazy mind-
writing brain on fire.

January 26, 2016

Reset alarm, snooze,
snooze, sleep through, jerk awake- I'm
off to a slow start.

January 25, 2016

Daybreak flops amongst
plush clouds- pop vitamin D,
hope for sun ere long.

January 24, 2016

Baby blue skies, wisps
of clouds obscure sun- cat turns
away from window.

Cat transforms, staring
up plaintively, kittenish
form- just one more treat?

Somehow loveseat just
isn't big enough for us-
guess there's too much love.

Birds leave barren trees
for berried bushes- flee with
fruit before cat sees.

A late wake up is
furthered by cat, snug in my
warm spot- why leave bed?

Cat stages a sit-
in by his food dish- starved cats
everywhere unite.

January 17, 2015

Waiting to fall, thoughts
swirl halting my progress- sleep
eludes the weary.

Amaryllis and
Christmas cactus wane- my need
for spring blooms waxes.

Cat watches murder
with interest- crows are free,
but don't have set meals.

January 13, 2016

Hands stained yellow, mouth
ringed yellow, cup rimmed yellow-
warm turmeric milk.

Cat investigates
my bowl, porridge. Yuck! Past days
it held chicken soup.

Bunions torment me,
from them I'll never be free-
guess I'll just drink tea.

Small red dot appears,
cat pounces, chases, then scorns-
laser pointer play.

Stirring beauty on
Saturday morning, sunning
cat, hot tea, rest- breathe.

Looking forward to
weekend, but dreading Friday
task list- rest takes work.

While my love's away,
cat draws closer in bed- from
sidepiece to fur hat.

January 6, 2016

Coal black against sky
blue, lone crow on a wire- dives
for earth, disappears.

January 4, 2016

Hum of fridge, roar of
furnace, meow of "starved" cat-
morning impressions.

January 3, 2016

Coral red petals
shimmer- new amaryllis,
new year, new thirst, hope.

Restless nightmare filled
sleep, I wake up with a shout-
it's late and I'm tired.

January 1, 2016

The more years change, the
more I stay the same- in mind
at least, not body.
