" Blink " by CanyonWind

something deeper fills my thoughts

its just a blink away
every time I close my eyes time passes
i can run after it or sit and just watch it

nothing i can do changes the outcome

days to weeks
week to months
months to years

i am a puff of smoke
a wink in time

i reach out my paws and take a breath

this thought makes me smile
i don’t hold on to this life in fear
i don’t let go of it either

something deeper fills my thoughts

i rest in it
i seek after it
my peace is here

after all
i am but a cat
with nine lives

Happy Halloween, and don’t

    Great writing…and a great photo, too! Reminds me of a cat I used to know, who is no longer with us, but who always made me wonder just what was going on behind those jewel-like eyes of his!

  • Thank you Lou.

    What is life but a blink of an eye in the face of eternity? However, the way in which we spend it influences the path we will take in the hereafter and I am sure that this lovely kitty has enriched the lives of those around her in innumerable ways, so she is by no means insignificant. Adding her to my Favourites.
