Cat Expression

Simba sits there watching.  Calmly staring without blinking at me.  What is he thinking?  Is he preparing to nap? Is he getting ready to scold me?  His sister is playing with  his favorite toy but  he is not deterred.  I continue to knit and he continues to stare.  This goes on for some time.  (Long enough to get a couple of pictures that are all the same pose.)  Then, just as suddenly as he took this pose, he rises, arches his back to stretch, meows, and leaps from the sofa and off he went.

Perhaps, I should consider this a lesson to me from the sage, Simba, a lesson in calm, peace and tranquility.  And maybe what he is saying to me with those eyes that look so very stern, "Hear what I am saying, be quiet and at peace.  Relax, life is good, remember what I say!!"

Simba is the sage
The cat that's full of wisdom
His eyes say, "listen."

Tranquility his
Calm and peace the lesson
He wants this for all


Thanks be to God!!!


I'm joining for the first time Little Things Thursday.  Looks like fun.  Drop by for a visit!

  1. Simba is simply adorable, as she sits there looking at you and waiting patiently for your to take the photo.

  2. A good message and lesson - accept the peace and tranquility that sits right in front of you - it doesn't always have to be a journey or chore.

  3. Simba is one smart kitty. I often think my kitties are teaching me and I'm not always paying the proper attention!

  4. Sweet kitty. At least your will sit with you. Ours is an introvert.

  5. Cats Rule!!!

    What a beautiful friend Simba is. And wise.

  6. This is the second blog I visit today to tell me to relax, be quiet and at peace. OK ... I get the message. I'll sit in front of the TV all day with my two friends pizza and beer.

    God bless.

  7. good morning cathy,
    thank you for the gift of calm tranquility.
    love having you and your sweet sage back in the haiku circle!

    Happy Weekend to you,

  10. SImba has lessons for each of us.

  11. my kitty Jax often gives me that same kind of look. I try to discern why, usually not able to. now I wonder if he too is trying to infuse me with his wisdom, of if he's just toying with me!

  12. Animals as teachers, wonderful, thank you.

  13. What a majestic being, your Simba... Thank you for sharing this beautiful lesson of calm. I will think on Simba as I go about my day!

  14. I love the word tranquil and it is a quality I strive for! Wise kitty. Wise you to listen to him!

  15. have a nice weekend

    much love...

  16. Cats are very good at doing that --sitting and staring. :)
