Little Cat Feet, Moving On


Fog

THE FOG comes
on little cat feet.

It sits looking
over harbor and city
on silent haunches
and then moves on.

~ Carl Sandburg (1878–1967) [Chicago Poems, 1916]

I could be on 180 tension, when I look at a sleeping cat's face I calm down ! It's the best and most healthiest mean for stressed people ! Isn't he so cute when he sleeps ? They have so peaceful faces.

Morgan is a beauty, and looks warm and friendly too. Thank you for the Sandburg poem; it's always been one of my favorites and one of the first I memorized when I was little.

Morgan reminds me of my first cat, Maxie. Oh, what a great kitty he was!

Morgan is a cutie-pie! Don't you wish you could relax so easily?! LOL We'd all be in better moods if we could sleep like that! D :)

There is something very relaxing about watching a sleeping cat.

Dee said...

It looks like Morgan really knows how to enjoy life!

Mom Unplugged said...

That is one of my favorite poems! It is quite perfect for Morgan who looks so soft and grey, just like the fog. Lovely pictures!

I love that the Sandburg poem itself is kind of like little cat feet--it wafts in like fog...and then, just as quickly...is gone. *smile*

When you are stressed petting a friendly cat makes you relax. What a cute boy your have.

There's a choral rendition of Sandburg's The Fog that is stunning. It is a round and I love to teach it to my students. Great to see it here!

I hadn't heard the poem before -- I like it, and I especially adore the pictures of Morgan!

Dorothy said...

Morgan is beautiful in sleep as well. Aren't they all. The photos are great.

So my thought on that poem - if the little cat feet he's talking about were MY cats' feet, the fog'd be denting the cars...

Morgan is such a beautiful GIRL - and her stripes always make me think of my Willow kitty - and now also of Pogo, although Pogo is brownish :)

She sleeps so serenely when you are busy flashing away with the camera!
