For S.

Cat sleeps in my lap

Too old to do much but purr

Just wants to stay warm.

Just like my little old cat. She purrs a LOT (I read somewhere that it's common for cats to 'vocalise' more and more as they get older). I'll keep this one for her.

Hi Jean,

Thanks for your comments! This haiku of mine has taken on a special meaning for me lately.

One of the most important things in life is to have a place to feel cozy.
Besides my creative life, it's all I've ever truly wanted - because I never had it. That cat is living the high life!

If I could only build that cozy place in my mind, I would never again have to worry about my physical surroundings.

I'm a sucker for a good haiku.
