"Nature's Prayerful Niche"

Verse Courtesy Sunshine Hills Biblical Tract Soc.

A Sonnet by Miomyone

It's a rare cold morning of the early year
   my neighbour's cat sits warming its buns
on the hood of the lately-rested car
   in the parking-space next to mine

How providential, i say
   that Jesus helps eliminate
the trials of a newborn day
   by rejoicing with a cat

A homily i call to mind:
   the Lord is kind, the Lord is wise
no matter what your errant sin
   the grace that massages a cat's behind
won't meanly see feline intent:
   an early bird's doleful demise

jan, mmvii
