Needy Cat (and Other Haikus)

Stretching

I feel like strings

wound tight to an instrument

being plucked softly.

 

Lotus Position

He sat with palms up

not knowing that the flowers

would fall in his hands.

Coupled Drops

Rain drops on the pane

drip slow on the glass until

they mix together.

 

Static Shock

Our fingertips touched

for an electric moment

unexpectedly.

 

Needy Cat

Her persistent mews

weave lightly between my feet,

asking me for pets.

Dog at the Window (and Other Haikus)

On the Tree

From the willow tree

buds the adventures of seeds

scattered by its fall.

 

Aroma

The open oven

spreads the scent of fresh baked bread

wafting through the house.

 

Uphill

The burn in my legs

is harder to overcome

than the mountain is.

 

Tinder

The burning tinder

smoked in a whirling tempest

before the wood caught.

 

Dog at the Window

His paws are like boughs

scratching at the windowpane;

save trees do not moan.

Cat Resolutions (and Other Haikus)

Birthday Cake

The candles flicker

atop the cloud of frosting,

dripping tears of wax.

 

Reading Poetry

The words start to stack

like a cairn of inky stones

on a paper shore.

 

Pizza

Molten triangles

of soft bread and sticky cheese

tempt my mouth with burns.

 

Board Games

The metal pieces

march down the board, conquering

with drums beat by dice.

 

Cat Resolutions

This year I won’t scratch

the couch, the rug, or the bed

unless I’m hungry.

New Year’s Dog (and Other Haikus)

Christmas with Family

A mountain of gifts

pile up under the tree

as people pour in.

 

Angry Child

The car clatters down,

smashed to pieces on impact

after he threw it.

 

Stood Up

The evening grows dark

and her warm eyes melt like wax

in the candle light.

 

Appetizers

Toothpicks and crackers

are scattered across the trays

to scoop up the cheese.

 

New Year’s Dog

He hears the glasses

clinking alongside the cheers

throughout the city.

Catniss (and Other Haikus)

Restraint

I swallowed the spit

that’s been sitting on my tongue

since I spotted you.

 

Out of the Shower

Shivers rip through me

as I slide back the glass door

and the steam slips out.

 

Khaleesi

The snow in your hair

reflects the sunlit smile

of your scorching heart.

 

Obsession

The lights have gone off,

my eyes have shut out the stars

but still I see you.

 

Catniss

She springs from the bed

like an arrow from a bow,

but lands in silence.

Dog Outdoors (and Other Haikus)

Fried Bananas

Sweetness in yellow

caramelizes in oil

and browns into gold.

 

Snow Angel

She lies in the snow,

waving her arms back and forth,

like she was flying.

 

Distracted

I can hear her voice

but the words seem to be lost

somewhere in her eyes.

 

Spicy Sauce

The tip of my tongue

tingles as the taste hits me

like liquid fire.

 

Dog Outdoors

He sees me and barks.

When I look through the window

he wags his tail.

Walking the Dog (and Other Haikus)

Shower Thoughts

Words rise through the steam

as the water scalds the cold

out of tired limbs.

 

Autumn Eyes

Her eyes are like leaves

that drift down to the red dirt.

Fall is in her hair.

 

Toothpick

Lodged between my teeth,

a kernel swells with pressure

‘til I stab it free.

 

Midnight Snack

The cold floorboards creak

as I cross through the kitchen

to sneak a quick bite.

 

Walking the Dog

He pulls the harness

in hopes that we will hurry

after the squirrel.

Cat Paintings (and Other Haikus)

Graffiti

I can’t read the words

but in the stroke of letters

I can sense their rage.

 

Homeless Man

His fingers tremble

as he fumbles to hold on

to his cardboard sign.

 

Cassette Tape

The whirl of tape

spinning in the dusty box

brings back beginnings.

 

Interrogation

The waiter walks up

cocks his pen and his notepad.

Ready to order?

 

Cat Paintings

A rogue pair of paws

step into the batch of blue

and cross the canvas.

Scraps Patrol Dog (and Other Haikus)

Family Traveling

A three-hour drive

watching the grey buildings melt

into the mountains.

 

Turkey Day

The hum of our voice

at the old wooden table

with plates piled high.

 

Mountain Mornings

The thin mountain air

enters my lungs like spearmint

as the sun rises.

 

Biting My Lip

I can taste the stress

as I chew hard on my tongue

and spew drops of blood.

 

Scraps Patrol Dog

His wide eyes look up

in hopes that I drop a bit

for him to munch on.

Dinner for My Dog (and Other Haikus)

YouTube

The electric lull

hums from the computer screen

like a lullaby.

 

Book Shop

The scent of paper

coated by distinguished dust

lingers at the door.

 

Singing in the Car

My thumb taps the top

where the window meets the door,

my voice in the wind.

 

Tripping and Falling

I can taste the dirt

between the blood on my lips

and the dry concrete.

 

Dinner for My Dog

His skittering steps

turn into the thumping bounds

to get to his bowl.
