Rain and Stars

.



Sudden summer rain soaks the garden before dusk— Cat licks early stars

Metal Cat Whirly Gig

Dizzy cat
Staggers and spins out of reach...
Birdie laughs mocking

On Track

cheese lies on the floor
mouse makes his way to the cheese
cat runs for the mouse

A HOUSE FULL OF CATS

A house full of cats
Poor ventilation
Doctor says I have hair balls

How mysterious
Our Tab has far -away eyes
UGHH!    It's flatulence

One cat likes to talk
It's the inflection that counts
Feed me, please....................? FEED ME!!!
        (meeeww)                      (MEEOOOWWW!)

Not bothered with mice
Nary a bug in the house
The new 'shredded' style

Fell in the eggnog
Hick    hickory....up he run
Dick    dickory    DOCK!    tick tock

Fun in the Sun

Black cat chasing birds
outside in the midday sun
veiled squirrel looks on

UNNOTICED


(Dedication: For Dr Ram Mehta.)


Morning light
Spreads divine psalm --
Touch of zest


By this stone bench
Sleeping cat purrs --
Feline dreamscapes


That old man sits alone
Strange neighbour --
Thoughtful wanderings


Sadness in shock:
Food court bankrupt --
Ghost town feeling 


Dress fitting session
Bridal gowns, smart suits --
A lovely affair


Just because
You said so --
Let it be then


Brief excursion
Nowhere near --
Beyond conflict


Open agenda
This showpiece --
Mood swing construct


Cheer wears a face
Serious as glee;
Smiles punctuate


For many hours
This wait upon --
Something new perhaps


Meal time in-between
Lunch and dinner --
Not quite the same


Gifts freely given
Notice brisk gratitude --
Thoughtful intent


Style a smile
Wait a while --
Cheer now piles


Explore fringes
Curiosity peeks --
Discovery sublime

The Fox, The Wolf, The Coyote

CANIDS

The Fox

with cat-like slit eyes
lurking near the hen house. . . .
meow-less creature

Chihuahua-like ears
catch a sound in the bushes. . . .
hens can rest easy

a small rat scurries
with that vixen in pursuit . . . 
it’s fast-food tonight

Coyotes

song of the desert -
long howls declare “I am here”. . . . 
mice and rabbits hide

barking dogs in threes 
unlucky mice collected. . . .
live practice for cubs

yippy yippy yip
heard among those happy cubs. . . 
celebration time

The  Pack

the pack starts its hunt
mountains rise up before them. . . 
thirty miles to go

in dark night - dog fight
one alone - tail stands erect. . . . 
yellow eyes back off

wolf faces grinning
twenty pounds of meat for each. . . . 
like one hundred burgers


For PD's Inner Animal Contest: 
for fox, coyote, wolf haiku
