#339 of 365 – 4 Haiku

4 Haiku



her breath slipped into

her last hour that slipped into

her eternity



was she alone or

being greeted by those she

was waiting to see



this was the day that

her tomorrows became part

of her afterlife



the room, so quiet

with her breathless body and

unshackled soul

    WOW, as usual. I like to think I will be greeted with a surprisingly large and loving fanfare. “Heavenly groupies”–ha ha!

      Thanks Figgy! I’m waiting to see my kitty-cat again…and of course the people I love. But for a long time there in my adolescence, my cat was my only solace. And when I was a young adult grappling with moving out into an apartment where you couldn’t have pets, with someone I loved who was allergic to cats – it was a heart-wrenching decision to have to leave my cat of 10 years – a few weeks before I was to move out, I came downstairs one morning and she had died in the night, comfortably lounging in one of her favorite spots. Maybe I’m a little la-la here, but I’ve always thought she went because she knew I didn’t wanna leave her. So that’s my story, and I’m sticking to it. Call me crazy…

    Great verses, Merle! The first and last ones are ten times BETTER than great! Lovely work on a difficult subject. — Ron —
