Cat Haiku

~ and one American sentence ~


wakeful playful

morning cat pauses

for a good wash


*********


from her sweet face

long loud yowling —

she wants me NOW


*********


Spring night 

my cat wants play

not sleep


*********


So as to settle purring to sleep she insists on my stroking hands.


*********


my cat curls asleep

wrapped in folds of red blanket

as if in a rose





















Linked to Friday Writings #6 The shorter the sweeter? at Poets and Storytellers United. (We could share up to 12 micropoems.)

  2. A nice kitty page, my kitty
    She has claimed your red blanket as being her own. I'm not real fond of the American sentence poem, I hope it will be a fad and go away.
    Thank you for prompting.
    BTW, I explained my situation of ending up off prompt.

    1. Oh no, that red blanket is one of hers! It is in a bed on top of her very posh scratching post.

      It’s fine to go off prompt when the prompt is optional. As they all are now.

  7. Ahh... so sweet! I love the NOW, because it's how cats do, and it looks and sounds like a demanding MEOW! Which I heard this morning (like most) from my fat cat Benny in the hall.

  8. Not much of a cat guy, but I'm now definitely a catku fan. Good stuff, even if it is full of felinity!

  9. Lovely snippets of life in the day of your cat. It seems she is pretty bossy, but there is lots of love around. :)

    1. Well she tries to be bossy. Luckily there is enough love around that she is philosophical on occasions when I ignore being bossed … and I always make it up to her later.

  10. Rosemary,
    You truly know the personality and habits of your cat.
    There's a mutual bond between the two of you, it seems..

  11. No catastrophes or caterwaulin at your house, Rosemary, just an occasional catnap and perhaps occasional catnip? At any rate, it all sounds like the cat's meow!

  13. Oh, I love your kitty. My favorite, wrapped up in the red blanket like a rose. How perfect!

  14. I love reading all your cat's adventures. Did I ever tell you that reading about your cats, in your poetry, was one of the inspirations behind my not-quite-journaling? Well, it was. It was nice to read poetry that sounded like glimpses of current living, and I wanted to do some of the same.

    My favorite is the last one. The red blooming calls to me. So beautiful.

    1. No, you never told me that before. What a truly delightful thing to learn!

      Many years ago (before computers!) I showed a boyfriend my private book of scribbled verses, and he said after reading it, 'It's like a sort of diary in poetry.' I guess I'm still doing that, lol.
