The finest jewels.



My eyes are brighter and more lovely than the finest jewels. They catch the swiftest movement of mouse in the grass or star in the sky. They shine like fire, like gold. At night they open wide to hold the smallest light so that I may see in the darkness.




Today I sit on the cliffs by the blue blue sea, and I watch the birds fly as they buzz in close. Stiff winged white fulmars come to see what I am. Closer and closer, and on the beach the seals sing. And I still wish for wings.

I think you are right! Nothing, not even the finest of jewels, can match the beauty of a cats' eyes. But you say it a lot better than I do!

Beautiful, beautiful eyes. There is nothing more beautiful than cat eyes. They hold within them the mysteries of the universe.

I had to come back and express my joy in your work, your paintings on you website. I live in a part of the world where I can only imagine such things. And I do. You are very good. I like your work. You've given me a small spark of incentive to return to my drawings. Thank you. D
