leaves wings and other such things


therefore i am mad

eyes of a curious cat

“And how do you know that you’re mad?

“To begin with,” said the Cat,
“a dog’s not mad.
You grant that?”
“I suppose so,”
said Alice.

Well then,” the Cat went on, “you see a dog growls when it’s angry, & wags its tale when it’s pleased.little dancing dog


Now I growl when I’m pleased, wag my tail when I’m angry. Therefore I’m mad.”

―Lewis Carroll,
  Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

  & Through the Looking-Glass


so i can’t help wondering,
what do the cheshire cat, dormouse,
& march hare do with their time
when the madhatter is away
from the tea party.

hum? i think i will join them,
how about you?

a pocket of water

water—soothing, refreshing, significant to the earth, significant to human life, significant to all life.water giving to the life of fish & flower

according to the water information program of colorado “the human body is more than 60 percent water. blood is 92 percent water, the brain & muscles are 75 percent water, & bones are about 22 percent water.”

once during a workshop, an instructor quoted a poet who inspired him. i am uncertain of the actual quote, but what i heard was “a pocket of water can save your life.” considering how precious water is,

i have continued to think about what that means. So…

when my sweet companionmy sweet cuddly pocket of water giving you the foot
is feeling cuddlymy sweet pocket of water showing off his beautiful long legs

& i am wrapped in the long legs of his feline hug, i find myself in a pocket of water.
the embrace of my pocket of water
