Today, we wish all the best to Ginnilee Berger on her birthday. Her 
poem comes from a Ghem Lady who prefers to remain anonymous, 
but was the manipulator of the infamous cat tree. In her private 
garden dome, she’s arranged for a full moon and dancing star show 
for us to enjoy while we wander amongst her garden of wonders. 

The lady is known for her love of botanical puns . . . the pussy willow 
is here but purring in sedated tones. Lamb’s ear waggles softly in the 
breezeless night. The spider plants weave beautifully intricate webs 
in the trellis, safely tethered by their scapes to the mother plant. The 
adder’s tongues tickle our ankles with their snaky little tongues as we 
walk by. The lady pulls out her calligraphy brush and composes this 
haiku on the spot:

Luminous cat tree
Meows under the full moon.
Harmonious song. 

And yes, the pussy willows in the corner begin not a raucous howl, but a 
striking rendition of Memory. Cetagandans . . . .
