Poems for Our Cat, Haiku

These poems about our cat were written over the years. Her name was Haiku. Yesterday her body left this earth. Her joyous, playful spirit will always remain with us.

I feel shy in the tub —
the cat's eyes unblinking

after my bath
the cat takes 
her bath
lullabye —
sung by my cat or my grandmother?
this sweet dream

one purple berry
on the vine —
the cat stares for hours

somewhere a cat
becomes a shadow
