    Love this!

    Was it the same red-brick lane maybe? ;-)

    My cat poem:

    open window
    the cat dozes
    half in half out

    "its own" says it: that proprietary air that only cats can manage.

    I love this one, very dearly. True, deep, meaningful, comforting. Thank you.

    I like this a lot. What is it about cats that makes them so haiku-worthy?

    Lorin, I'm sure I have walked down that red brick lane. Thank you.


    Kitty wants love
    jumps on my back
    leaving red claw tracks

    hunting stories
    the old cat yawns
    & walks away
