that sad day- - -

*** stay with me for the summer sweet kitty with bones so fragile and weak trembling beneath my hand I still remember that little ball of brown fluff you fit in my hand it has been sixteen sweet years and now the end is near I am just waiting for you to tell me its time _ I dread that sad day *** June 5, 2013 Kimo, Tanka, Senryu Forms

    oh my Constance. this is truly sad. I remember how much you love your kitties. When Callie cat got cancer a number of years ago, I remember having these thoughts you are having and she held out a long time but then things were getting bad and I had to do what we had to do. I'm so sorry. This is a good example poem for your contest. Luv, Andrea

    This is a sad poem, it happens though, one day they do die unfortunately! I know you can remember all those good years you have had with her(him), and those memories will last your whole lifetime! It's awesome that you have had 16 years with this kitty, such a fantastic poem my friend! I just love it when people combine forms, a trick that I learned a long time ago, but is quite a good one! What a delightful piece, Great Work!! PS I will check out your contest now...
