A Poem and Next-door’s Cat

Thank you to Caroline and Salinda for introducing me to this poem today though I do usually have my camera/s with me!
“Look it Over” by Wendell Berry
I leave behind even
my walking stick. My knife
is in my pocket, but that
I have forgot. I bring
no car, no cell phone,
no computer, no camera,
no CD player, no fax, no
TV, not even a book. I go
into the woods. I sit on
a log provided at no cost.
It is the earth I’ve come to,
the earth itself, sadly
abused by the stupidity
only humans are capable of
but, as ever, itself. Free.
A bargain! Get it while it lasts.

One of next-door’s cats, Zorro, came to call this afternoon, stopping off to have a drink of water from the freshly made rain puddle on our garden table.
