m-e-o-w   Cat Haiku
Haiku is a small Japanese poem.
Hai means amusement (fun),
and ku means sentence.

Haiku does not RHYME, but it
has a very specific RHYTHM.
Each haiku has three (3) lines;
the first line with five syllables,
the second line with seven,
and the third line with five,
making a total of seventeen.
Once you have read a few,
you will start to get the idea.

You never feed me.
Perhaps I'll sleep on your face.
That will sure show you.

You *must* scratch me there!
Yes, above my tail! Behold -
Elevator butt.

The rule for today:
Touch my tail, I shred your hand.
New rule tomorrow.

Grace personified.
I leap into the window.
I meant to do that.

Blur of motion, then --
Silence, me, a paper bag.
What is so funny?

You're always typing.
Well, let's see you ignore my
sitting on your hands.

My small cardboard box.
You cannot see me if I
Can just hide my head.

Terrible battle.
I fought for hours. Come and see!
What's a 'term paper?'

Small brave carnivores
Kill pine cones and mosquitoes
Fear vacuum cleaner.

I want to be close
to you. Can I fit my head
inside your armpit?

Wanna go outside.
Oh, No! Help! I got outside!
Let me back inside!

Oh no! The Big One
has been trapped by newspaper!
Cat to the rescue!

Humans are so strange.
Mine lies still in bed, then screams.
My claws aren't that sharp.

Cats meow out of angst
"Thumbs! If only we had thumbs!
We could break so much!"

The Big Ones snore now.
Every room is dark and cold,
Time for "Cup Hockey."

In deep sleep hear sound,
Cat vomit hair ball somewhere,
Will find in morning.

We're almost equals
I purr to show I love you.
Want to sniff my bum?
