A Year of Seeing: January 5: “Ode to Wanda Lou”

Ode to Wanda Lou

At least five times a day

I lift our cat Wanda Lou

and press the side of my face

against her furry body

and close my eyes and listen.

 

And stop.

 

I don’t know if she knows

that her heart beats within her,

but I know and am thankful

and I hope she knows that

she is loved.
