Billy Collins is my NaPoWriMo poet du jour… and today I’ve written a haiku about my cat, Marty.  Billy Collins has a way of sharing the truth of an ordinary moment with good humor.   And cats… Jane Kenyon’s beautiful poem The Blue Bowl was featured on the Writer’s Almanac today and it got me thinking about all of the cats I’ve loved, as well as the beautiful impermanence of our lives.
