Elemental

pour Minou

What you do is elemental, earthy and essential.
     How could it be anything
     But magic and hard labour?

We benefit, your family of felines,
     Your husband and your daughter.

Green is your garden,
Calling us out to wander its ways.

Stimulating and soothing,
It carries the eye along its curves.

     Full of surprises,
     You have encouraged
     A multitude of lives.

We step out into a universe of kindness.

Thank you for the sights and sounds,
Thank you for the scents that greet us,
Thank you for the feeling on our fingertips.

We must believe it all is part of us.
