What spill?


i watch , as if in slow motion –

the paw reaching,

and thwak!




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…



You’re right –

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