i am cleaning.
it is hot.
i find a blanket in a box, it had been the winter home of moths and mice,
toss it on the floor to be washed
unwittingly tossing it onto the kittens –
a gift from the heavens!
They romp thru the tunnels of folds,
grab the edges and pull the massive weight across the floor,
they pounce, they play,
they spend the afternoon showing me
just how much fun it can be to explore the unexpected.
