Prompt 31 – AWAKENING

It is possible to experience an awakening in this life through realising just how precious each moment, each mental process, and each breath truly is. /Christy Turlington/

Carpe Diem Haiku *Tyumen*

It was February of 1944 when inhabitants of Tyumen gathered their cats for them to be shipped off to the State Hermitage in St.Petersburg (Leningrad) as “rescuers” of artistic treasures from rats. After the 900-day period of the Siege of Leningrad (the Leningrad Blockade), when millions of people starved to death, there was no cat population left at all. The rats had survived, of course, and started to eat everything, including the priceless art. 238 Tyumen cats were sent to the northern capital where they saved the day and became heroes to the nation. Nowadays in Tyumen there is located the only Siberian Cat Square in the world (with alley and 12 different sculptures of cats) for this historical fact not to be forgotten.

How do you spell ‘love’?

loveeee

i like my body when it is with your
body. It is so quite new a thing.
Muscles better and nerves more.
i like your body. i like what it does,
i like its hows. i like to feel the spine
of your body and its bones, and the trembling
-firm-smooth ness and which i will
again and again and again
kiss, i like kissing this and that of you,
i like, slowly stroking the, shocking fuzz
of your electric fur, and what-is-it comes
over parting flesh … And eyes big love-crumbs,
and possibly i like the thrill
of under me you so quite new.
