Within and without

Let there be many windows to your soul, that all the glory of the world may beautify it.
 ~ Ella Wheeler Wilcox

I was within and without. Simultaneously enchanted and repelled by the inexhaustible variety of life.
~ F. Scott Fitzgerald
(Unlike Mr. Fitzgerald, I don't feel repelled, but instead, enchanted and often mystified....)

I have studied many philosophers and many cats. The wisdom of cats is infinitely superior. 
~ Hippolyte Taine

inexhaustible
cat curiosity -
we give them our wonder,
in return they
share their wisdom
inside
out, out
side in -
when we or they stop
feeling
unstoppable
variety,

philosophers sadly
triumph

Anon: Your poems (and you) always provide unstoppable variety...

Oh, your kitty is magnificent, Ms M. And the light is beautiful.

Ms M said...

Thank you, Shell. Chava Kitty is very wise. But then you already know the wisdom of cats :-)

I'm knocked for a loop by that last photo. The profile looks like the cat's spirit.

It does look like that, doesn't it? Feline mysticism...
