The king is vacationing in Greece

Though, now, hardly a plane can go airborne

So, the people scorn

In the meantime, a little guy is at ease


Mouse in the House #99WSP

It has always amazed me: Critters around the house

A childhood fav, was this little mammal: The mouse

Every Spring and Fall, we heard just one shuffle

On the attic, where it cleanly slept, without scuffle

There were no others than this one tidy mouse

Later, I encountered more than one mice filled house

It didn’t make me loose sympathy for the mouse

It’s a gentle spirit; at home, it’s relatively harmless

In a domestic environment, it may cause minor stress



Animal Symbolism

Cow, Snake, Eagle, Dog

World philosophies & religions

Reading about it, removes the fog



Their presence has become rare

A goldfish is prone to stress & fears

Yet, if you take good care of them

And bond with them,

They may grow as old as 16, 20 years



A cat proudly shows its master a prey
Amazing how species complement
And understand
In a loving way






Our Park

Stupid officials removed all bushes
All our rabbits are gone
I don’t care about the lawn
Never mind holes around the bushes

In het karakter van de cavia
Ligt een les voor de mensheid
Onvoorwaardelijke vriendschap, loyaliteit
Een klein dier, onschuldig als moeder Maria
