Alley Cat Haiku


I heard the old Mexican proverb today, “tell me who you walk with and I’ll tell you who you are”, and this haiku thrust itself into my head — unbidden, but not unappreciated.

seekers and thinkers
and people who pet stray cats
that's who I walk with
That cat has a strut, don’t you agree?

We met this big-personality long-haired calico on the day after Thanksgiving in Algiers Point (across from New Orleans), and I find myself wanting to go back, just to see the cat. And to walk with it, seeking and thinking and dreaming, together.

Like me, the Musical Millennial was drawn to the alley cat
