Cats on Tuesday: Haiku Edition





Isis

The jet black princess
married to my side watches
my dreams while I sleep.

Troll-footed she kneads
gossamer trails--our slumber.
Which one is a-twitch?






Morgan Le Fay

All grey, all a-stripe
Head to heel, tip to belly
and back again, there:

A wave of graceful
motion, weaving spells, casting
her magic circles.






Emma

Queen of everything
she surveys and—we suspect—
things she does not see.

Painted by angels
I picture the days it took
to colour Emma.

I think Isis is my favorite, but Emma sure has pretty colors.

Magnificent Haiku! Perfect descriptions! I can feel Isis' paws!

Such beauties they all are! I love the line "I picture the days it took to colour Emma." Marvelous!!! Thank you for sharing this talent with us! D :)

Beth said...

O.K. Whatever! I write a cute little poem by accident and you go and show me up.
Heh.

What beautiful poems. You have captured each kitty perfectly! Isis certainly has some toes!! I love the "troll-footed" image that you use.

The lady who lives with me really likes your poetry, but I do not like poetry. It makes my tail fizz up!

I did like the "troll footed" part because Sam, another cat who lives here, has many extra toes. We are not supposed to talk about his feet, but next time he annoys me I will say he is troll-footed! Ha ha ha!

I like your haiku and your blog.

Thanks for visiting my space and leaving a comment.

Lately, I have been following the pet food recalls and am very concerned. Seeing all of your pretty cats makes me think of this.

Just curious- Is your llama friendly?

Best wishes and may all your fur friends remain safe.
