Today we mostly chilled, quite literally.
We dreaded the drive to Duncan in the 27 degree weather
Then we realized that the car was the warmest spot altogether.
Cleaned out the car from our 9 day trip, we did that too,
And now the house looks like a zoo.
The cats don’t want us to leave again and they pout,
They won’t leave me alone, they were on my nerves and I wanted to shout.
Instead, I phoned a friend.
I told her nothing of my feline frustrations
Because I have no doubt
That when I’m dealing with this type of mood,
It’s not really what it’s about.
The cat did not create my seeming lack of care,
It was not what set me off,
My mood was already there.
So I searched deep within me
For what it was I feared and nothing could I see.
And because I believe whatever we fear
Can be countered completely with love,
In the end,
I phoned a friend.
