Several Catti Haikus

Jade eyes ringed tawny

pert nose in grey heart -shaped face

head on paw feigns sleep

 

Grey kitten snoozes

turns tail shows who’s boss sniffs sky

leaps upon my lap

 

Expressive meow

follows footsteps slinks softly

curls upon cushions

 

Little Leo purrs

Jade eyes in grey fur snuggles

sheathed claws soft paws

 

Affectionate purr

responsive intelligence

instinctively sure

 

 

Kitchen Haiku                                                                                                

White cupboards, blue walls

Warm underfoot grey cat prowls

Pans gleam suspended

 

Four Ages of Cat

Snoozes inside slippers

nestles in crook of ankle

sleeps in silent dream

empty space phantom presence.
