senryu – her soul is hers no more = son âme n’est plus la sienne my Maine Coon has died - her soul is hers no more though mine is hers ma Maine Coon est morte - son âme n’est plus la sienne mais elle est la mienne Richard Vallance This senryu is inspired by the following senryu by the author of Pi-Ku poetry, on twitter here:
I Argentée I Argentée have lived a hardy life: a Maine Coon mix, I’ve forded babbling rills, the freest spirit, who’s never suffered strife! Why, I have scaled formidable forest hills, where I’ve run into coons and surly bears who’ve never phased me in the very least; I’ve roamed the fields and sounded foxes’ lairs, so why be so surprised when I am deceased. Because I pride the space I always crave, although I was on leash, the leash was loose, to leave me running free, for being brave, since as you know I’ve always been so spruce! For all the bugs I’ve chased and mice I’ve caught I bid you, fairest friends, to mourn me not. Richard Vallance March 29 2019 in memoriam, fairest Argentée, libre esprit (free spirit) April 15 2003 – March 14 2019
