Both of these haiku are written so beautifully, Rick. In the second one, I could sense the solitude of night and in the first one, the danger that comes with evening is well conveyed with the "primal thirst" and the cat lurking in shadows. Awesome entry for Charles' contest! Wishing you success. Been having internet and phone problems lately. Hope they're fixed now. Love, Carolyn
