Pareidolia

             …that’s the proper name

                                 for     seeing bunnies

            in the butter

                                     kangaroos

         in the coffee swirls
                      sombreros in the bath bubbles…

                Once    I saw two

slender clouds                            white twine

             almost horizontal
                                 against intense blue

                   unmistakable
                                   eyes of a cat,
                               crouching –

           BIG     AS     THE     SKY

                         squinting
                 down at all              the        mice,

         scurrying          in the mulch
                                               around the trees,

         and I wondered
                                how long it would be

                  before
                            he seized the day

           …and pounced !
