Cat Watching Sports (and Other Haikus)

Feet

Toes between the growth

tying knots in the wet grass

itching for a walk.

 

Game Day

The couch has been set;

the snacks carefully laid out,

waiting for the start.

 

Watching Soccer

Waiting for the tide

to come crashing back to shore;

cresting suddenly.

 

Pick-up Game

On a half-cut pitch,

spotted by patches of dirt.

Playing like a pro.

 

Cat Watching Sports

He hopped up with me,

purring at the moving screen,

while I screamed with joy.

Cat on the Table (and Other Haikus)

Table Outside

Gliding through the dust,

my fingers draw a smile

in the table dirt.

 

Morning Coffee

So much depends on

the small, yellow coffee mug

perched on the counter.

 

Boy with a Hose

The boy with the hose

spots me walking by his house,

smiles, then sprays me.

 

Packing Bags

My life would seem lame

were it not for the novel

peeking from the bag.

 

Cat on the Table

A leap to the chair

then one more to the table

just to say hello.

Cat Asking for Food (and Other Haikus)

Mother and Child

The wooden figure

immortalizing their love

slants off to the left.

 

Project Planning

Tomorrow I’ll start

planting my tulip garden

if the weather holds.

 

Half-Finished Projects

Tools stacked to the side

and a doorway with no door

both gathering dust.

 

Rope Swing

Out over the lake,

suspended in the pine air

waiting for the fall.

 

Cat Asking for Food

You scratched the table,

crying for my attention

to fill up your bowl.

LOVE POEM #91 – The Feline and the Mutt

The Feline and the Mutt

 

They stare at each other through the window

briefly, before he leaps against the glass

and she goes running back to the great room

to hide behind the cushions for a bit,

 

but after he wanders off to go play

she slinks out from her hiding place to watch

as he snaps at fluttering butterflies

passing through the yard for their summer trip.

 

I think she wonders what it would be like

to feel the warm air against her skin

to jump after their orange patterned wings

and leave those clawless paw prints next to his.

Cat Walk (and Other Haikus)

In the Closet

Hiding in the dark

beneath the tear-stained dresses

that dried her red eyes.

 

Nudity

It was like fine art

watching him parade around

in his ankle socks.

 

Fortnite

It took two long weeks

to pry his wired fingers

from their controller.

 

Bathing

I sank to my nose

in the warm palm of water

that held me softly.

 

Cat Walk

She walks the thin line

along the back of the couch

in her black fur dress.

Cat in the Night (and Other Haikus)

Talk

We have gone so deep

I can feel the cool grip

of dreams at my feet.

 

A Happy Poem

It started with rain,

pooling as the water ran

down the grey sidewalk.

 

Iris

Gazing in your eyes

past the warm ebon guile

to a lonely heart.

 

Oh

Just one syllable

slipped between these solemn lips

followed by silence.

 

Cat in the Night

You crept on the bed

and curled beneath the folds

of my comforter.

Hungry Cat (and Other Haikus)

Introverted

Sometimes I will hide

underneath layers of skin

like clams in their shell.

 

Touch

We touched fingertips

like wisps of wind to a tree.

Now my heart won’t stop.

 

Sleepless

Sliding down the stairs

of a sleepless night’s torment

into a sick noose.
Brainstorm

Like Zeus’s lightning

thundering in the neurons

struck a mental home.

 

Hungry Cat

I know that you’re mad

but there’s no need to maw me

while I get your food.

CAT DREAMS (AND OTHER HAIKUS)

The Dark Side

In the sunshine

the silhouette of his spite

hide in shadowed grins.

 

Hot Night

Tossing and turning

in blankets, like a slow roast

for a shish kebab.

 

Flashbacks

These shuddering eyes

show the reminder of eves

in shattered glass frames.

 

Through the Woods

Down the winding road,

I came across a flower

mourning its bare patch.

 

Cat Dreams

Curled on my knee,

the cat kneads the brown blanket

in his kitten dream.

CAT UNDER A CHAIR (AND OTHER HAIKUS)

Boxes

Opening cardboard

and seeing family photos

behind clouds of dust.

 

No Invites

A black iPhone screen,

an empty Facebook inbox,

and friends streaming fun.

 

Firewood

With your sacrifice

we kindled the sickly sparks

that staved off the rain.

 

Late

Hello, golden doorknob,

I think your brumal greeting

will mirror her dad’s.

 

Cat Under a Chair

While you lick your lips

and paw at the wooden legs,

I’ll sit and pay bills.

CACTUS (AND OTHER HAIKUS)

Tunes

On the brown sedan,

in leather jeans, listening

to spellbinding songs.

 

Cat Hair

A haze of gray hair

harries the great purple chair

after Felix leaves.

 

Swing Set

Slowly, the swing turns

in the tired winter air

waiting for a friend.

 

Broken Chimes

Hanging from split strings,

the surviving metal pipes

hum a severed psalm.

 

Cactus

I caress the thorns

contemplating what creatures

made her so thick skinned.
