senryu – every cat = tout les chats


senryu – every cat = tout les chats

every cat
has his day... and *
catches today 



tous les chats
ont leur jour... et 
attrapent aujourd’hui

Richard Vallance

* Usually, ending a line with a conjunction is a bad idea in a haiku, but I think it works here with the pause preceding, giving pause for thought. Please advise. 

International Cat Day, August 8 = le Jour international des chats, le 8 août

HRH Argentée, my gorgeous Maine Coon mix, died on March 14 2019, just one month short of her 16th. birthday. She walked on a leash all over Ottawa and the Gatineaux Hills some 1,200 times in her life. Her ashes box is inscribed, Libre Esprit (Free Spirit). I miss her terribly!

Elle marchait au moins 1.200 fois à la laisse pendant se vie à Ottawa et parmi les Collines du Gatineax. Sa boîte funéraire est inscrite, Libre Esprit. Elle me manque tellement.
