full moon--
all of the cats on the roof
appear white

    I like this. I love cats too - may I direct you to the haiku pages of my website, where there are poems devoted to cats. I hope you find something there to your liking.

    December full moon
    on the frost-sparkled deck
    the kitten scampers

    the rising sun *

    behind the morning clouds
    veins of gold

    Moonlight -
    on the chill rooftop
    two cats in a heat

    sitting on the roof
    waxing moon light --
    suddenly, i seem so small
