By Charles Buckowski
I know. I know.
they are limited, have different needs and concerns.
but I watch and learn from them. I like the little they know, which is so much.
they complain but never worry.
they walk with a surprising dignity.
they sleep with a direct simplicity that humans just can’t understand.
their eyes are more beautiful than our eyes.
and they can sleep 20 hours a day without
hesitation or remorse.
when I am feeling low
all I have to do is
watch my cats and my courage returns
I study these creatures
They are my teachers.
