National Poetry Day

I thought all the national poetry business was in April, but I now understand national poetry day is today.  And I read it online, so it must be true (insert ironic glance).  Anyway, with that in mind I decided to post one.  So far it’s untitled.

Have you heard the song
the planets sing to one another?

Or felt the yearning
of seed for Earth
and Earth for seed?

Do you know the secret language
whispered between the roots
of the trees?

Does the moon call to you;
does she pull your heart with her
even as she turns her face?

Then
be still,
and pay attention!

Kitten Update – Names

kats

Thank you for the suggestions.  My (local) writing group met at my house and were playing with the kittens (we are a very serious and hardworking group) I was explaining that was teetering between Mooney and Leif for the second kitten’s name. Then one of the group said, Well, if you have Harvey then the other hast to be Wallbanger.”  And that’s all there was to it.

So, I’m please to introduce Harvey and Wally!

(Harvey is on the ground, with the white feet.  Wally is sitting, looking on.)
