catty haiku

by Jim Benz


cat sits on a stool
at the window looking out
birds, mice and rabbits

*

cleaning the cat box
our house has grown so stuffy
with the windows closed

*

our guests are quiet
watching my cat eat a mouse
what do they think of?

these are all wonderful, and as a cat lover, in a family of cat owners, I can really relate. Especially to the last one, for my sister's outdoor cats in the country. Well done.

All three pretty good Jim, but 1's my favorite. The third one reminds me of a black cat my family had when I was a kid. One time it brought a turtle home, steering it by batting the shell with its paw. Kudos!
