a corner


cat on a sunlit chair . aged dog lying below on a soft quilt to cushion his aches
hoping for a treat . they watch me create with paper on a worn table

watching me
a corner of the table

tea kettle steams . holly bush waves to the sky outside the studio window
we relish moments of crunching and sipping . waving back

No wonder your paper
creations fairly sing out loud,
surrounded by so much
aliveness!
And what wonderful
eyes to see it all:)
