Haiku (hy-koo) is a traditional Japanese verse form
made up of
three lines and words totaling seventeen syllables.

As a poem style, Haiku began in the 16th century
and presents a pair of contrasting images that illustrate a profound truth

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, crap! Help! I got outside!
Let me back inside!

:::::


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

:::::


Humans are so strange.
Mine lies still in bed, then screams.
My claws are not 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 smell my butt?

:::::


The cat is not all
Bad - she fills the litter box
With Tootsie Rolls.
