Kitten Season, Homeless Pups,
A myriad of little faces with glistening eyes and bright whiskers.
Some indifferent or distracted in their cages, others rushing hopefully to see you
If you have the heart to look...
Each forlorn in their own way,the result of human manipulation gone awry.
In this safe, holding place now, because of the kindness of others.
We breed other sentient beings to receive love
Sometimes we forget that they belong to us forever
We put them out on the street,throwing them away, when they grow to be inconvenient
We forget to protect them from unwanted birth
They multiply on their own,
living a life
of urban wilderness and surviving as best they can Becoming a nuisance to be captured and exterminated.
Inextricably linked to them, we are the elder brothers and sisters of life on Earth.
We are the stewards of these little souls.
They belong to us and we to them, profoundly and eternally.
Offering them well-being and a chance for a wholesome life,heals us all.
Opening our hearts, we make the universe whole.
Whatever is in your heart, to do for our fellow creatures,
There are many ways to help, even if you are not able to offer a home.
Breathing in I have arrived
Breathing out I am home.
Breathing in I see the bounty of life around me
Breathing out I am grateful for other beings
Breathing in I open to their presence
Breathing out I invite them into my heart.
Breathing in I take their suffering
Breathing out I send lovingkindness
Breathing in I see clearly
Breathing out I act to heal
May this information benefit you, those you love, and all sentient beings, everywhere.
