Happy Earth Day!!!
It's still National Poetry Month and today is Earth Day. Isn't April great ? And, to top it off, one of my favorite kitties -- who was fortunate to end up at WARL from another shelter, but stayed here for a very long time without being adopted -- is now luxuriating in his foster home where he decided -- immediately --that the bed in the main bedroom, with the people in the bed, and the dog in the bed, too, were where he would spend his nights. ( Yes, I know, that is one, very long run-on sentence!!) So much more comfy than the nice, but lonely, cat tree in the tower where he resided in Kitty City at WARL. His foster person is watching him closely before choosing the most perfect name. At the shelter, this handsome boy was dubbed Kid Rock, not a particularly fitting moniker. So in honor of the boy's temporary placement and National Poetry Month and Earth Day I have written my own Haiku that really doesn't reflect Earth Day at all, unless you consider that said foster kitty is not on the street killing birds.
