Cat Haiku

Haiku (hy-koo) is a traditional Japanese verse form made up of three lines and words totaling seventeen syllables. As a poem style, Haiku began in the 16th century and presents a pair of contrasting images that illustrate a profound truth.

You never feed me.
Perhaps I’ll sleep on your face.
That will sure show you.

You *must* scratch me there!
Yes, above my tail!
Behold, elevator butt.

The rule for today:
Touch my tail, I shred your hand.
New rule tomorrow.

Grace personified.
I leap into the window.
I meant to do that.

Blur of motion, then —
Silence, me, a paper bag.
What is so funny?

You’re always typing.
Well, let’s see you ignore my
sitting on your hands.

My small cardboard box.
You cannot see me if I
Can just hide my head.

Terrible battle.
I fought for hours. Come and see!
What’s a ‘term paper?’

Small brave carnivores
Kill pine cones and mosquitoes
Fear vacuum cleaner.

I want to be close
to you. Can I fit my head
inside your armpit?

Wanna go outside.
Oh, crap! Help! I got outside!
Let me back inside!

Oh no! Big One
has been trapped by newspaper!
Cat to the rescue!

Humans are so strange.
Mine lies still in bed, then screams.
My claws are not that sharp.

Cats meow out of angst
“Thumbs! If only we had thumbs!
We could break so much!”

The Big Ones snore now
Every room is dark and cold
Time for “Cup Hockey.”

In deep sleep hear sound
Cat vomit hair ball somewhere
Will find in morning.

We’re almost equals
I purr to show I love you.
Want to smell my butt?

The cat is not all
Bad — she fills the litter box
With Tootsie Rolls.
