Touch of Catnip. . .

on March 21, 2023

Catnip is all about life. The excitement. The wonder. The tranquility. Most of all, it is awareness of knowing that all three abound in conspicuous, as well as inconspicuous, places. Some glare you right in the face but go unnoticed, yet await your personal discovery.

The cat chases the mouse


The frog catches the fly


The dice keep rollin’


As tunes rock on by



Such are happenin’s
That daily life brings
With chases and captures
Come emotional stings


Within ties that bind
Bumps and knots along the way
Thoughts of sights ahead
Bring smiles at close of day



Perhaps it’s ocean waves
Stars twinkling in the night sky
The hugs, the tender kisses
The dance you can’t deny


Maybe it’s none of these
Perhaps they’re all rolled into one
Within each day that passes
It’s life. It’s love. It’s fun.


All part of the Catnip of Life!
