What spill?

kitten-spilled-coffee

i watch , as if in slow motion –

the paw reaching,

and thwak!

.

what?

.

they say that it is no use crying over spilt milk…

but what about spilled coffee?

it is darker, and stains…,

.

tears and spots

 remind me of the need to be more mindful,

 the need for self forgiveness…

.

oh!

You’re right –

it’s simply gravity bringing me back down to earth.
