Cat Albums

         

I have an album collection 
of moments 
stray and deliberate; 

each dependent 
upon time and circumstance; 
friends, years attached and bright shiny faces. 

There too 
are written 
words, 
paper clipped 
in decade stacks, 
categorized 
and organized, 

they lie 
on my mind's desk-- 
like cats 
lounging 
languidly. 

I stroke them-- 
old friends familiar; 
lapping them up like kitten's milk-- 

others move arthritically 
yet close 
preening softly. 

My album cat ecology 
is witness 

all together 
and separately; 
some mute-- 
some paper purring memories. 

My hands stroke all of them 
in these photos 
fresh and graying
eliciting from me
sighs
coming to me from down the years.
I think of them all
as cats purring.

Reviewed by John Flanagan 6/29/2011
This is gorgeous writing, not a waste word or phrase
and ever so superior expression, and for a cat lover
like me, a gem.
I notice, Lonnie, you don't rate your poetry..may i ask
if that's deliberate? This and the others deserve a much
wider readership.
In admiration,

John
