PURR STRUMMING UP THE GOOD STUFF

PURR STRUMMING UP THE GOOD STUFF

I’m gonna drum it up and hum it up and
strum it up…

I’m gonna shape the shapes,
the ones I’d like to walk through
cool back o’ cat, tail swaying way
walking answer through the doorway
of a question

I’m gonna be it
and believe it
both before
and when
I see it

I’ll pray on my knees
or meow like the wind
calls the absolute

Tight
I’ll yoke on
the cat’s cradle steering wheel
hands that cycle seasons,
the commitments

And kindle good energy
through my chakras,
loose spine tinkle
my steering wheels
too

And when I need it
the self-reliant conjuring bulk
of my generative purr

I’m going to open my spread,
cat stretching back scratching carpet
salting all from the axis
of the midnight sun
to the lap
of Capricorn

Fertility of diversity
from obtuse to acute

Avenues, lines, cradle,
so many pickup sticks,
longitudes and latitudes

Whiskers

Kat scratched spectrums of
meditative reflections

~ Lady Purr
