Not Gone

Dawn1

A thought
fleeting
profound content
grateful

Everything perfect
sweet
Just-as
it-is

Passing
it’s passing
eternally
tangible

A thought
fleeting
grasping
longing

How human are we to want good things to last. Somewhere I remember reading that attachment and detachment flow together throughout our entire lives. I’m fine with that. Remembering Nankipoo a Shasta Abbey cat, 19 years old, who died yesterday. RIP.
