Sparrow and a cat

25 Apr

Days In The Blackberries Field

next to the window
old cat sleeps on the alert
lazy afternoon

clumsy sparrow flies
precisely in the cats mouth
so unbelievable

cat tries to escape
my shouting in the backyard
all mouths opening

death and salvation
the circles of life

For Carpe Diem #457, Sparrows. Maybe not the right response, but I’ve just remembered this event.

    Life IS unpredictable, and yet we humans keep trying to plot it all out. Maybe the sparrows know best.
