Greetings. I’m killing two (symbolically only, of course) birds with one stone by posting this poem. Raj’s owner was keen to get a copy of this poem about her beloved pet, and it is a poem which is short and easy to post given my continuing use of the local library’s computers. And as an added bonus it demonstrates that I can, at least occasionally write poetry that rhymes.
Given the state of the world at the moment it is appropriate to write about something which is light and joyful. It is so important to stay positive and good-humoured in these times of confusion.
It is great too to find sources of inspiration and upliftment in the world around us.
Raj, the Buddha in Disguise?
Raj is not here, but he’s not far away,
and if I don’t see him now now, I will another day.
Raj is ever-present and for him the world is fine.
He cares not if its raining or if the sun doth shine.
He miaows with great vigour, for Raj is indeed a cat.
He loves his life and all his food, so much…
so very much, he’s getting fat.
But Raj has much to teach us, of this I’m really sure:
for he has contentment… peace…
and a love, that’s really pure.
So learn from Raj, the pussy…
Don’t let life’s “moments” get in your way.
Let go… forget your troubles…
and live each moment, of every single day.
