both old...

the door wide open
for her cat

(Not sure. Perhaps a haiku/senryû? I 'felt' autumn when I saw it.)

First I thought, that cat and door are old. (I heard the sound of both!)

Then I read it a second time and found "her". Now I know: there could be an old woman. But I am not sure.

This moment of irritation is so human: To me it is a very fine senryu.

Best wishes

I like the thought that the door is old (old too). An old woman in an old house -- she waits for her old cat ...
