From the Cat: Happy New Year!

Monet wanted me to send out her greetings and wishes for a wonderful and joyful new year!

From her humans (aka slaves), we also hope you have a beautiful 2023!


Haiku Moment: breathe

dark broken by light

snow day, but no sleeping in

time to wander, breathe

Haiku Moment: tree people

daylight freezes them

and winter, but come August

tree people watch, play

Haiku Moment: face forward

flames claim the night sky

face forward, time to wake up

gold fades to day blue
