Silent and Soft

My response to Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie B&P’s Shadorma and Beyond – August 6, 2016

This week Candy has chosen a poem from a book she discovered in a book sale by James Kavanaugh, an American poet, new to me too:

Soft And Silent

Everything I love is soft and silent,
My cat, the morning, the end of day,
Even the moon in its way.

Everything I love is soft and silent,
The water, the forest, the snow at play,
Even the mountain in its way

Everything I love is soft and silent,
The sun on the sand, a rainy day,
Even the wind in its way

Everything I love is soft and silent,
The grass, the brook, the leaves at play,
Even you in your way

Here is my shadorma:

Silent moon

silvers everything

in her sight

and my cat

purrs softly, grooming herself

in a pool of light.
