Letting Callie Go

A full year it grew as dear Callie cat endured that stinking cancer. Night screams came, which pierced my heart. Only then could I let go. . .

O, the pain - - -

my cat is dead and I weep my heart is broken in a few seconds it was done I felt the life fading from her and she was so still and in her death she was beautiful and utterly at peace and all the pain was gone _________________________________ March 16, 2015 Poetry/Fibonacci/O, the pain Copyright Protected, ID 15-654-563-0 All Rights Reserved.

My Lily Cat

My Lily Cat

I miss my dear loving kitty,
You died so young, what a pitty!

I loved to stroke your softest fur, 
To watch you play and hear you purr.

You gave such joy, though unaware
How your sweet spirit helped me bear

The many burdens on my mind,
You shared your loyal love so kind.

Your picture sits upon my shelf
Behind the glass, sunning yourself.

I cried for two months when you left,
Inconsolable and bereft.

My feline friend where are you now?
I pray you'll be reborn somehow.

A Cat Pursuing Mice

A cat pursuing mice
seems never 
to think twice;
an owl swooping on prey
shows no thought 
of delay--

Then enters man--
expressing volition, 
a higher moral ground
of conscious
yet kills for sport
as well as nutrition…

Oh! on occasion
for God
and country….

Cassio Laps Wondrously

Cassio Laps Wondrously An open porch, gifts spritely legs on all his fours, meows he begs so opens I, a tuna can not be prepared, a stray in tan that came to be for many years a wandering did set in fears yet his return continued on meows are heard, that be his song untimely death outside our door car screeching sound could not ignore near fronts our yard, the roses bloom midst stands a cross neath lies his tomb heartfelt love, receptive wills he laps Heaven's milk, eternally. 2020 August 23 *1st Place* All Pets Go To Heaven ~~Constance La France

You sit and stare
upon your dish,
no strength to bear
even as I wish.

For you to live
forever strong
were mine to give
your life prolong.

But being neither 
here nor there
Death comes hither
So be prepared.

                 A Haiku Trilogy

            We found you dear cat.
            Smokey, dead you,beauty you!
            Our soul tears splash, splash.
            Gone to Rainbow Bridge!
            Playing with butterflies galore,
            Milk in rainbow bowls!
            No more fur to kiss.
            Balls you chased such,feline grace!
            Angel, ours,at Rainbow gates!

Death of a Kitten

I recall the day that I brought  h e r  home,
          six weeks old and a ball of spotted fur;
all around the house that day she did roam,
     at times-  she ran so fast she was a blur.

Then, she would  c r a w l  upon my knee to purr,
               oh, such a murmuring tranquility;
that little  s o u l  was all fragility.

        One day, I came home to find her dead,
oh, I will miss that sweet  l o v i n g  personality;
                buried now-   under roses red.

Oh ... grandfather's violin
It sounds like cat crying
Then why did I inherit you
Me in classical world
Oh ... grandfather's violin

White Cat

What of this pregnant white cat?
Her dirty fur a smudge
Against the snow's clean canvas,
She mews at my door for milk.
A stranger to me, she appeared
Without express invitation.
And now, she lingers, like a cold.
This cat is an embarrassment.
Like friends whom I feed
Because I lack strength
To turn them away.

Golden Cat

He dragged himself along a narrow corridor,
carrying a golden cat statue with him.
He walked as though the weight of the world
was on his shoulders, as he vomited
out thick blood. His favorite white shirt
was now red and wet. 
On his skin, veins were dark
and swollen, as though they wanted to explode!
It is picking the artifact
from  goddess Bastet’s shrine,
that made him to be as he was….

Haiku 5 - mournful cries, way of nature, flight into eternity

mournful cries fill the air
mother bird calling for its baby
eaten by the cat

mantis catches butterfly
I am sad: yet, that is 
the way of nature

loud feathered thud
- flight into eternity
deceptive glass pane

My Girl And Me

Hello, my name is Pearl Smudges and I am a cat
I live in a beautiful apartment in an old building
With My Girl and until recently Violet Patches

    One day My Girl got the cat carrier out
    She put Violet Patches inside and left
    When she came back the carrier was empty

          And she was weeping

I rolled myself up in my blanket for three days
Slowly, sadly we are coming to terms with our loss
The end of grieving is just within reach

Ode to my Gerbil

I’m scum, I know, I am an ***
I knew through cardboard you could pass

You chewed and chewed a great big hole,
I wish I knew you had a soul

You ran and laughed, but what you saw
It stomped you flat, it was a paw

That cat, he smirked and ate you raw
He stuffed you in his great big maw

My dear sweet babe, I won’t forget,
Your tiny life and what you met

The fault is mine, and I must pay,
Though when and how, I cannot say

The day will come, my life’s all done,
Until that time I’ll have no fun

My Cat

My cat is so lovable she really makes me humble
She loves to play and cuddle and roll around and tumble
She can look into my soul with those oh so seeing eyes
What does she feel as she licks and cleans her daughter?
I can only say its love, what else?
I watch her as she sleeps, I can see that she dreams
I know she is a soul, just like you and me 
Please keep in mind this simple token
That we are all part of God and the chain cannot be broken

Death of a Bird

A pretty bird Sang upon a fence Until a cat jumped to pull a wing down Sad little bird lay on the ground within sharp claws Trembling Struggling With no real hope Her feeble attempts doomed No more will I hear her sweet song on the fence Sadness Finished The cat moves on Close by a nest of babies wait Pretty bird looks one final time at the sky One last chirp _______________________ November 28, 2012 Poetry/Verse/Death of a Bird Copyright Protected, ID 12- 438-939-0 All Rights Reserved.

Ghost Cat

There once was a white cat I knew
Who had feathers; a ghost cat who flew
Through the shimmering streams
Of the moon’s silver beams
Leaving slain doves in the dew

A Christmas Memory

A truant blizzard's hurl allowed shadows hide
when the night was pale. And all the dark ravens yelled
as I buried my cat, last year, frozen and dead. That all
the lilies of in between, wailed of my Christmas eulogy.
