Animus is an imagination-kindling realm of wonder

The Writer’s Voice (writer #126)

One can be born into fame and wealth, but happiness is not a birthright. Qibi (Chibi), a rich, but lonely cat prince, lives in a setting contemporary with ours, but in a world unlike our own. Having attained every success and comfort, Qibi wonders why he is famous, yet unpopular; rich, yet unhappy. His soul-searching tale pits greed against compassion and wisdom, showing that the way to true happiness, lies in doing what is right. AN EPIC EPIPHANY, complete at 3500 words,  is accompanied by several illustrations.

Deep in an ancient, silent forest,
Beyond the realm of prying eyes,
Beyond the busy lives of humans,
An oak tree reaches for the skies.

Enchanted by a spell of old,
The oak fears not the winter’s cold.
Though even more amazing still,
Is the other secret it conceals.
Ensconced in the ensorcelled tree –
A door, right through reality!

    I love your concept! I’d want to read this book for myself as an adult, since I love animals.

    • Thanks for the kind comment, Carrie-Anne! The stories would no doubt impact ‘children of all ages’ 🙂 – all the reader needs is an avid imagination and a passion for animals. I will let you know once the work is published. Wishing you the best! Ken

    Nice concept! Love the animalness to it, even though I’m more of a dog person 😉 You are so right, happiness is not a birthright! Learning that right now. Good luck!

    • Thanks, SC! I do, in fact also have tales about dogs (and other animals), but you’ve got to make a publishing start somewhere, right?! 😉 Thanks for the support and best of luck weathering your trials and tribulations.
