I haven’t done haiku in a while. I’ve decided today is the day. Join me as I wax poetic on Niles, my elder brother. Eh hem…
Darkly stealthy, cool
Slinking about in the night
I know you are there.
Sleek, panther-like gait
As your tongue rasps through your fur
You stop and listen.
Nineteen Ninety Nine
Sixteen years resting your head
On MomFOD’s shoulder.
Niles finally got a chance to star, really star, in a CATastrophes film. It seems to be a runaway hit. Please enjoy Niles in ” What Your Senior Cat Might Be Thinking.
Today, I would like to talk about these guys that come into our house once a year. I don’t know where they go for the rest of the months! DadFOD seems particularly attached to them. How do I feel? Let me express my feelings in haiku. Eh hem…
I see you sitting
Legs dangling from the black ledge
Taunting my prey drive.
Lights go flashy flash
Each night at four o’clock-ish
Afraid planes will land.
You wear stylish clothes
I think your hat would fit me
I will take you down.
What do you think of these guys? Do you have strange objects that show up once a year and disappear again? Tell me about them.
PS. I’m considering replacing Tuesday Haikusday with something else next year. What do you think? Would you like to see something new? Let me know.
