Happy Haiga Day!

Inspired by Jama Rattigan's fortune cookie post this past Friday. This is more of a pun than a poem!

Poetry--Had Enough Katku?

This is the last Friday of Katku before I'll take a break. They are kind of addictive--at least as far as creating them is concerned.


Text:

winter sun
in complete control
of the cat



Text:

cat watches
the neighbor's cat
watching



Text:

unfed cat's look
burns right through me
...she walks away


The Poetry Friday Round-Up is taking place at My Juicy Little Universe. Next week, it will be here!

day at the shore

the blinding reflection
of sun on the surf

motion, smells,
the squark of gulls,
and, his imagination
