Love this clever piece my dear friend. Neighbor's cat used to sit on my new car and leave scratches all over it.. I was not fond of that nuisance. Your haiku, great imagery depth and a fine creation too.. A fav...

Thank you, Robert. My neighbor happens to be my sister, so her cats take it for granted that they can come in and out of my garden/house when they feel like it! ~ Best regards, my friend. // paul

Beautiful and even a bit witty, Paul. Mom and I always planted mint in our gardens. Congratulations on your win! Love, Carolyn

Loved this Paul. We have three cats and the oldest has always come home every day all summer with a gift for us. Usually something dead. Once he brought us a live bat. I captured it and turned it loose in the garden. Great job. God Bless, JB
