It turns out that people arrived in the Amazon basin before it was a rainforest.  Well that's new.

ysabetwordsmith: (Fly Free)

This is the freebie for today's fishbowl.  It was inspired by a prompt from [livejournal.com profile] marina_bonomi who linked to an article about a stray cat befriending a lynx.


Transcendent Friendships


In the Leningrad Zoo,
a stray cat slipped through the bars
into the enclosure of a European Lynx
in search of something to eat.

Instead of attacking the interloper,
the lynx delicately sniffed noses,
greeting in the universal language of felines
this tiny stranger from afar.

From that moment they were inseparable.

Sometimes it is possible to find
such transcendent friendships
as can surpass the bounds
of size, shape, species
or expectation.
