haiku


I listen to the

wind wooing my windows and

hope they won't sucumb.

haiku (for Max - Rest in peace.)


Our cat has left us

along with Summer's warmth, but

we must carry on.

I was certain that the cat was dead, but I was afraid to pet him one last time. Part of me thought if I touched him he would move. I don't know why that frightened me because it would have meant that he was alive. I will miss him. He welcomed me into this home with love and enthusiastic affection. I petted him goodbye for that.
