...When I was seven we lived by a lake and a neighbor gave us a strawberry red kitten. We called him Charlie. He was the best cat anyone could have, smart, cuddly and cute. But after a month because of my father's and my baby brother's severe allergies we had to find another home for our kitty. I was very sad and I wrote a good-bye letter for him hoping to find a good family for him. Soon I painted two kittens, so both I and Charlie would feel better. My wish did come true... A little later I saw Charlie playing with a white and gray striped kitty on a neighbor’s porch...
each time I visit heaven they jump over a dreamfence
red clouds are ready for loving as I love my love paints my cats
our minds are somehow stuck together as we dream together of our own heaven
and after they curl up inside my sweater we knit our own heavens
