november light (and a cat for good measure)

november light is grace—a holy kiss 
to wake the weary structures of wood and straw and stone,
illumining worn edges and surface cracks,
consecrating dusty sills with dappled shadows,
flecked with gold.

the cat is a pragmatist
light to her means spiders floating in gossamer silk
and lizards idly sunning, all fair game for her sharp teeth
and dragon eyes, her pupils a slash of india ink
in the brilliance.

Tobin says, "look at mews (his nickname for cats) it is our kitty!"

Jennifer Richardson said...

this comforts me so.
I love the soft rhythm of your words
and the way the sunlight plays also softly
with your days.
thanks for sharing the beauty,

The words are so lovely - and the photos too. I love how you capture the light.

you caught that silvery light so well.
