  • Beautiful photos….the light on the black fur and golden eyes….you captured feline nature perfectly

    Another gem, Rachael! For those who think that 5-7-5 is outmoded, this haiku should cause them to think again. Excellent!

      Thank you, Ron. I like the 5-7-5 way. It’s also nice to change it sometimes if it feels right!

  • Miranda Stone says:

    Is that your cat, Rachael? What a gorgeous photo! And you have truly become a master at that unexpected twist in the third line.

    • Rachael Charmley says:

      Those last lines really do make or break!

      No, she’s not my cat (I couldn’t find a name to acknowledge the image) – but it reminded me of a tiny wee female who lived and died on the farm a long time ago. 🙂
