…Six months ago today I arrived here at what has now become The Cats Castle.I and The lady along with Sir Cat had been on the road with The Lady’s niece behind the wheel for some twenty hours of travel.Ragged haggerad and with Sir Cat mightily upset I walked through the door from my old life to this new life here in East Tennessee with the lovely Lady Leslie.A tribute to this event and my Lady seem in order today so with this preamble and a couple of reposted blogs I will now wish my Lady a happy one half-year anniversary and assure her that with each passing day I find myself more pleased that I have come to be a part of her world and I adore her and this new LIFE we are creating together here at The Cats Castle.
…First the blog I wrote two days before leaving my previous life to come to this new home and the second repost is the blog I wrote the day I arrived.After twenty hours of travel I stayed up to greet the sun here in this new place and was inspired to pound out some words.So without further preamble I now present the two combined as Rainbow’s End….
The Captain’s Light
…Such a simple thing it is with my fingers and these keys sending words with which to please in early morning light.Awake today with break of day having passed another night.A fine good morning these keys to bring for eyes that long to see her lovers wares reflected there starts life together be.When morning brings the birds that sing and restlessness does strike to think of things that joy does bring and reach out at dawns first light.She sees him there his heart laid bare and quiet for the taking as birds they sing and light it brings her lover for the waking.To have to hold to be so bold she reaches to the place for lovers play at break of day with smile on her face.It’s so astounding she hears heart pounding is it his or maybe hers then knows then and there in mornings airs in matters not for birds that sing do surely bring desires well within.She has she holds and is so bold and lovers play begins.
…Twas once upon a dream it seems so very long ago on restless nights neath stars so bright a dream it did begin.A man was here a woman there and neither seemed fit in.Friendships made as notions played across the ethereal waves and words were made on great white page was magic to begin.First astounded fingers pounded that from deep within he cast his net on lovers bet out into the briny depths of human seas begin to wander there and wonder then at the man within.Without control his words did troll amidst the ones of others and that set he to pounding keys in search of she the other.His words they played upon the page her eyes then did to see the sages heart and wonder start could this man really be.I see him there his thoughts through airs to my heart they well have traveled he is there with heart laid bare and feelings now unraveled.Then she did begin with sheepish grin to read the words of sage and then to dare her comments there at first with shy chagrin to leave for sage upon the page and love it did begin.
…Time did pass and her love would last but would the sage take note his heart was there laid so bare in those words that he often wrote.To have to hold to be so bold as the dream he put to page wandering wondering where is love for lowly sage.Then came day with words at play they touched her heart so deep that boldness came replaced cautions game his attention she did seek.I see this man without a plan his heart it’s mine does seek with dreamers net cast to the depths of seas so dark and deep.If wishes were fishes and I were fisherman upon the page he wrote to join him there at Captain’s chair her heart now dared to hope for surely he would somehow see she waited on him there between the lines of words so fine she read the man within and his heart it found with loves abound together they should be.
…If wishes were fishes and I were fisherman I’d cast my net into the depths and hope for love to win.Red sun in morning red sun at night I raised my nets up from the depths and there I did surely see a lover fair was waiting there with eyes so bright to my delight the Captain she was wanting.The lowly sage then went to page and found his heart’s delight to have to hold to be so bold they walked away from night.And so you see it came to be that wishes turned to fishes and in the Captain’s net she placed her bet his heart she set to win.The wheel it turned and sun she burned upon expectant mother earth then on starry night by full moons light his ship for her came in.Now hand in hand on lovers sands they walk together bright two hearts have found that love abounds and both have left their night.Red sun in morning red sun at night she has become the Captain’s light.…………….
The New Day
…Hundreds of miles and many long hours on the road he sits now in the damp chill of the early morning.There is no sleep as of yet he’s wired from the trip and excited to be here in this place of new beginings.A strange and wonderous path has brought him here to this place and time.It’s 4AM and soon the sun will rise on this the new day,new chapter in this humble man’s life.
…In the distance a semi rumble hums on it’s working way pounding tires to pavement much like the man pounding on these the symbols of humanity.The moon and stars still look the same but the pre dawn birds seem to sound different here now in this new place and time.The silence is near to deafening at this the darkest hour before the dawn as in the distance yet another lonely trucker goes by plying his trade and the man is compelled to strike fingers to key as thoughts and notions spring from the well of his very soul clamouring for release from the now strange peaceful silence in the dusty chambers of his mind.He knows not what words will be coming out to play as the sliver of silver moon retreats before the rays of lady sunrise he only knows that he is determined to watch the sun rise on this the first day of his new life here on our expectant mother earth.A very real rebirth awaits the man with the rising of sun today and the wandering wordsmith has come out for to play.
…So the sun she will rise as the moon he slowly sets and the man has traveled far without hint of regret to be in this place and time to sooth his wandering mind and embrace this the new day that is about to unfold.For today is all about the humble man without a plan whose fates have surely changed and in the echoing chambers of his mind he beholds a new peace.In the distance the rubber meets the road as humble man without a plan runs to watch this day unfold to have,to hold,to be so bold his hand dips into pot of gold found here at Rainbow’s End………………………
…Sir Cat and I having been so welcomed here have settled in and are very pleased with ourselves for summoning the courage to leave the only place we had ever know as home to become the two newest members of the household here at The Cats Castle.To the Lovely Lady Leslie we give all love and devotion due this marvel of Woman who graces our expectant Mother Earth and has brought these two old souls HOME…….
