"The sharp knife of a short life

I've had just enough time..."


- "If I Die Young" The Band Perry


I see Beauty in many things. And like the ghosts that only speak to you if you notice them, they tell me wondrous tales. With my camera and my thoughts, I captured these as faithfully as I can to share with you. And by doing so, they gave me the reasons. And though the thousand reasons may not all be sweet and some indeed bitter; they are still reasons to live. Come to think about it, that is Life, isn't it?

A Dog In The City Of Cats.




I've had just enough time to...   be a dog in the city of cats.


Taken while wandering around in Kuching, the City of Cats.



I’m a dog in a city of cats
But they don’t seem to mind
I find it easy not to chase them
When I could be the one to be chased around
I turned my attention to mice
But I wish they were of rabbit’s size
My woofs now contains some meows
And I licked my fur the cat way now
I sing shrilly to the hanging moon
And add a howl or two as I croon
I learn to appreciate the smell of fish
No longer holding my nose in anguish
But not lifting my leg to pee
Require some effort you see
For I still do that quietly
When no cat is watching me
I’m a dog in a city of cats
And they tolerate me
But I always wonder -

What if I’m a cat in a world of dogs instead?

    I was in Kuching, the City of Cats when I saw - what but Cats!! Kuching in the local dialect is cat. And you can find all kinds of cats there and there is even a museum of cats! It is one of my favourite city and life slow down a notch or two when I walk along the river front looking at sampan ferrying passengers to either banks. I do wonder though, what it would be like if I am a dog in a city of cats? And vice versa :D

    interesting notion.
    could one find nurture outside of one's element?
    The feeling of being a stranger in a strange land...

    a curious city :))))))
    No chance for a dog with so many cats.
    Better run away if you want to have an unharmed snout!

    Beautiful and fascinating image my friend. And a brilliant poem to go with it. Yes I imagine it must be very confusing for a dog to be living in a city with only cats ha ha .Still, I think a dog could benefit from learning a thing or two from cats lol. : ))

    Personality of a cat is so different , to that of a dog !!
