Feline Night Presence

Cat howling, after
Midnight, before dawn, is darker than sound,
Made when no ones ‘round.

                                laying down for nap 
                                 stretching out long 
                                 sleepy orange kitty 
                              snow sprinkles down 
                               paw prints all around
                                  kitty runs to hide 

                                 longing to get out
                            watching birds and squirrels 
                                  oh, no,  hot paws 

                            coming thru the trees
                                 lights turn on  
                               cat eyes shinning 

                              look into the sky
                                 wild and free 
                          bobcat on mountain top 

                            moonlight stars twinkle 
                             prowling the night skies                            
                           morning light cat sleeps 

                             morning walking path
                               sun gets in eyes
                             lingering heat cat sighs

Haiku 5 - mournful cries, way of nature, flight into eternity

mournful cries fill the air
mother bird calling for its baby
eaten by the cat

mantis catches butterfly
I am sad: yet, that is 
the way of nature

loud feathered thud
- flight into eternity
deceptive glass pane

Sleep is like a cat
Only attracted to you
If you ignore it

Senryus 11 and 12

Attic floorboards creak
Something seeks a memory
Sleep and leave it be

I'm sure there are two
Another cat sneaked inside
My cat helps it hide

Dreary winter days.
Warm house, full dish, fresh litter.

Soft paw pads caress my face
Melting I spoil her.

Squirrel plays and shakes
 a fist atop the bluebird box....

Blue feathers strown
empty nesting box today...

Haiku: Physics: 'Schrodinger's Cat' pontificates on his chances

Me... closed box... death hangs*, 
Heartless dreamers can't see in
Bastards! Am I dead?

Poet's Notes:

A famous thought experiment in Physics in which the life or death of Schridinger's 
Cat (an imaginary animal) in a box depends on unpredictable chance. The 
experiment unimpeded, the cat will die, the question is only when. The larger 
issue however, is that since no one can see what has actually happened, the 
actual state of the cat is unknown and hence can only be discussed in terms of 
the probability of the cat being either dead or alive. And probability ends the 
earlier mechanistic view of both God and His creation. God is no longer black and 
white, color has returned to His cheeks.**

* hangs - like the sword of Damocles, capable of falling randomly at any instant.

** see my earlier poem 'Black Body' for an even more poetic discussion.
