Haiku, about a cat
« on: January 20, 2017, 06:02:09 pm »
I composed this haiku a few days ago, inspired by my quirky, wonderful cat sitting under a bush out the front of our home of an evening, watching the world go by & waiting to be let in.

Quote
Dark leaves drip water
night, quiet aside from rain
yellow cats eyes stare

With hindsight, it comes over a bit gloomy, but was drawing on the environment around me at the time.

As some of you may have seen from another thread, we lost this cat earlier this evening so RIP my precious Greebo, you will be sorely, sorely missed, always.

"If I get on, Susan thought, it'll all start again.  I'll be out of the light and into the world beyond this one.  I'll fall off the tightrope.
But a voice inside her said, You want to, though...don't you...?
Ten seconds later, there was only the snow."
(Terry Pratchett's Hogfather)

Thats lovely! Only dark if you assume the cat stares in a negative way.

((hugs)) Losing a pet is tough, sympathies and good vibes. I hope good memories stay fresh in your mind until the end of time :)
