Cat Haiku


I found a copy of some Cat Haiku I wrote years ago.

1

Cat on my stomach
Grandfather clock tic-talking
the eternal purrrr.

2

On the windowsill
raining, drenching all the world
Mondays are for naps.

3

Waiting to be fed
the bowl always seems empty
Merton licks his chops.

4

Sleeping on her chair
a tiger eating catnip
dreaming within dreams.

5

Kitten in my bed
two-thirty in the morning
friendship is timeless.

6

Hidden in tall grass
Light wind rolling a green sea
unchang'd, unchanging.

7 aka "Whiskers"

Cloudless summer day
prowling through the dandelions
field mice fear his name.

8

New moon, winter night
darkness envelopes the town
attack cat on guard.

9

Darwin on a limb
chirping robins above him
silently watching.

10

Watching the fishbowl
swimming in a private sea
pawing at the glass.

11

Spot begs for a treat
smarter than any canine
Cleo begs for no one.

12

Cold, hard winter rain
the teapot is whistling
Ethel dreams summer days.

13

Moonlight through bare trees
bed of crab apple blossoms
rolling with delight.

14

Home sick with a cold
Cleo lies curled on his bed
unseen and unheard.

15

Light December snow
Mittens reaches for the stars
Christmas tree falling.

16

Purring contently
in the depths of the closet
cashmere sweater bed.

17

Cool May evening
children playing on the grass
Ethel cleans herself.

18

Between the bookshelves
Woody crawls and paws the wires
all my files are lost.

19

Telephone ringing
Ethel wakes from her slumber
where are her servants?

20

Old beer bottle cap
under the radiator
just out of Cleo's reach.

21

Shoelace bundled up
lying on the hardwood floor
No one to play with.

22

Tuna can opens
a sleepy home comes alive
symphony of cries.

23

Twilight, daylight dies
crows stop their nightly crying
Max prowls the garden.

24

Paw prints in fresh snow
icicles already drip
my grandmother smiles.

25

Baby boy crawling
thoughts of pulling furry tails
Leo peers from his perch.
