    This is a truthful event that is found here within nature my friend! I agree that cats do enjoy birds, they will attack any bird that is near them, if the bird isn't too big, even then they might still attack! I know those outdoor cats will eat the birds and leave very little left, well they won't eat the feathers! They love to leave gifts at the doorstep for the caretaker of the cats! And ants will be ants, they will eat almost any animal that is dead! I really enjoyed reading this poem!

    Hmmm.. cats ! Love them, but they do tend to bring us the wrong kind of 'gifts'. Great Haiku.

    I think of all the poets.......you capture nature with the most finite eye. So magnified and wonderful!
