It was after supper
on a summers eve
I was recovering
thought I would look
forward soon to walking outside
Perhaps around the block I thought with pride.
I thought and stated to my family
It will come.
Then I spoke to my Inner Master,
the Guide of my life.
How long will I have to wait
to be strong enough.
The answer came….
Live in the moment
Act as if
(The healing was complete.)
I took my walker up the stairs
No easy chore.
Packed a note book with a pen.
I proceeded out the door
for my walk.
A neighbours work vehicle
displayed the name FORK LIFT
A piece of machinery to lift
huge pieces of equipment.
I smiled and thought to myself.
The Master must have used
that to take my burdens.
The next ah ha moment
a woman on the
other side of the street was
Running to keep up with these
minature mobile rugs on long leaches.
We smiled at the display of these tea cup
sized puppies running full speed.
She said if she had rollerskates,
they had so much heart
they probably could pull her like a dog sled
I continued on to the playground…..
Briefly had a visit there,
I better start to think
about walking all that way back.
There was motteled grey cat
in the next yard I saw,
Good evening I said to the grey cat….
Who promptly walked away.
Then it happened
A large orange and white cat
started walking towards me.
It gimped along as I do.
My heart opened with understanding
I sang the HU
This was certainly one of the Mahanta
He walked with more determination
Coming closer he let me look into to his eyes
As I sang the HU more
I got a surprise
The cosmos, the Universe opened up
And danced with me.
The cat now close enough for me to pet
He turned his head with head.
He purred he rubbed his back by my walker
He could not get enough of this love
He purred so loud, what a talker.
We were having a Soul to Soul visit
He stopped all of sudden
I looked to see
What is it
The owner of the house
drove up in his big red truck
The cat stayed with me
I thought oh what luck
The man smiled and said
George you have a way with the ladies.
I told him thanks for sharing George with me.
He said take him home he is obviously yours
I said I could not do that
I can barely do my chores.
We laughed together and as I turned to go
George was walking with me
I thought oh no
I cant take him home except in my heart
I walked along with him
We did not want to part.
He walked with me now
Past a house or two
He wanted to keep his own home in view.
He had given me love at the end of a long day…
So I know Miss Irma when you speak of love
Of your beloved cat….
Oh, I know, yes I now know,
what you mean by that.
