I walk by the cats
each one’s attention to me is palpable
each one waiting
as I go by (or pet, acknowledge, feed, scoop)
their equanimity reminds me to pay attention
my feet on the floor, my hands on the fur
where is my heart?
I take a breath, feel, Be
each cat, each breath, each blade of grass
step by step, blade by blade is personal.
One moment, one me, this time to be.
