Holiday Stress

The holidays can be an emotional roller coaster with skyrocketing depression and anxiety. The stress of family issues, wanting perfection , and money problems can lead to overwhelming stress on the mind and body. To this end I have a new endeavor that I hope will give a little respite- https://m.youtube.com/channel/UCr62v3IrYOrT3hkkfjGTjIQ

May you find peace, relaxation, and calm this holiday season.

Meditation with Cat, by Susan Dean Wessells

Contemplative
as a wizened nun
he nestles in my arms,
regarding his universe
with a contented sigh.

Mandalas of dust motes
morph new designs
while phantoms unseen
(by me)
draw his unblinking gaze.

Head tucked in
and upside down
he sleeps
(and softly snores).
I cradle him,
humbled
by his absolute trust.

A study in serenity,
he instructs me
in the zen of being.

“It seems if there is a cat in the house of a poet at least one poem will be generated extolling the feline. This is my de rigeur cat poem.”  — Susan Dean Wessells
