    ..and we can hear the music… thank you for this moment of (feline) peace; have a happy summer day 🙂

      haha… to live as a cat … at least for a little while 🙂
      You also have a lovely day. This morning brings such a welcome breeze…

    I love how the second line of this haiku blends the first and third lines together so well. It all just flows. (Am I making any sense? 😛 ) Another excellent poem, Haiku Queen! (And I adore the accompanying artwork. It’s perfect for your writing here.)

    • Rachael Charmley says:

      You always make sense! Sometimes it’s hard to keep the flow going and then make that cut with the last line… but I like the discipline and I think I’m learning a little about poetry writing as i grope my way through the darkness! Pleased you liked the puss. Irresistible!
      Take care my friend, and I hope all well with you. All this publishing success is such, such grand news.

        You think you’re learning “a little” about poetry writing? I’d say that’s a major understatement, my dear! 😉 And thanks again for all your kind words regarding my writing. ❤
