Lapping it up

A lap
a cradle of sorts
formed by sitting crossed legged
creating a space
a waiting invitation

She comes quietly
sensing before seeing the mantra pose
feeling the calm
drinking-in the moment

And so lightly does paw touch knee
another paw reaching into the space that calls
her body moving like water
as it flows between the banks of the lap she has discovered

The calm deepens as both feline and friend
listen to the sounds -
a clock ticking
soft rain falling

And all is still
timeless
held in a cradle of quietude

Then life beckons with its call to do
the lap changing shape as a body becomes upright
A feline now in search of play
And a mind now freed of itself

Lapping it up

Artist's Description

Lately my feline friend Chels has been joining me as i sit crossed legged on the lounge in simple meditation. She is such a neat package in my lap and enhances the experience as she is very still and present.
