And than there was One

Today was the day.
My friend came and picked up two of the kittens. Blackie and Itty Bitty.
I cried. I am not going to lie. I love animals and wish that I could keep them all. However not able to do so.
Loki will be remaining with us. Thomas keeps trying to bite him or rather dominate him and Loki is having none of that. Thomas keeps trying to bite his throat to get him to submit and Loki keeps fighting him off. And Thomas is so fat the fact that he is being defeated by such a little guy is kind of funny.
I know the other two are going to a great home. I will get pictures and updates.
But my heart hurt a little when I said goodbye.

Truth’s Soft Sadness

Autumn’s crimson
golden blondes
faded
crushed to black
as earth cools
sending to sleep
Nature’s denizens.
Warmth from the sun
fleeting
a sad small gesture of defiance
in summer’s waning days.
Fallen leaves
blanket the ground
breath fresh on the air
frost on the blades of grass.
Honking geese flee the sky
another herald of summer done
sand is boxed
sun set to side
now we must
return from fantasy land.
I must let you go
let you return to your life
ignore these crystal tears
for you have moved on
even when you say that you have not
but baby
I know the truth.
