Daily Haiku / Senryu : Pamper

mind focused, writing
suddenly a claw taps me
“pamper me,” cat says

haiku by M. Nakazato LaFreniere

Midnight sometimes jumps up on the chair next to me.  Lightly extending his claws, he’ll tap me gently on the leg to catch my attention when he wants me to pet him.  Having enough, he’ll jump down, curl up on my feet and take a nap.

Photograph by myself, using a Nikon D3400, automatic focus and flash.  Really hard to take Midnight’s photo as he keeps moving his head.  He is affectionate, wanting to be caressed, hand running down his fur; not photographed.  He loves the camera strap; his head dipping down as his paw swings at the strap.
