Our Best Friends

For One Single Impression: Pets

Apple Billy was funny
Always cutting up in class
-still getting an A

When my cat got hit,
I buried her in the yard
-I kept her collar, though.

Visiting their world,
My host showed me all his pets
-lord, they were humans!

I like the way you integrated the idea of best friends with humans and cats! A nice surprise. The middle one haunts me. Losing a pet can seem unendurable.
Thanks for these.

You always have such a great range in your haikus. The last one is my favorite today.

Your second reminds me of how differently people respond to grief. When I buried my sweet Ching after he lost his battle with CHF, I put his favorite things in with him.

They complete a full circle! Great pieces!

That last one leads me to ask: have you heard of scifaiku? ( for info)
