Karumi is the Japanese word for "lightness". The famous Japanese poet Basho used it to mean "the beauty of ordinary things spoken of in a simple way".
"Marshmallow cat" would probably be greatful to be near (emphasis on near, not IN) a warm fire. Was it the same cat from the other poem? If so, you'll have to inform him/her that he/she inspired you!
Wow! I was about to leave this site (since I already commented), but the next word verification popped up and I had to share it. ROSES. Perhaps spring really is on the way!!!!
Yes, it was the same cat, on the porch of a farm house I pass coming home from work. ROSES--I love it!!
