my cats

where my cats lie
my leg is deep in slumber
pins and needles
I hardly feel
a loving touch

Haiku About Giraffes

she eats from treetops
faster than a lioness  
not a meal today

even on cloudy days

chatter of bird song

   fills the morning air

        my alarm clock

I awaken to sunshine

     even on cloudy days

view point

            ~


persuaded by time,
  clothed in rust, a sky reveals
    the hem of summer…
     round green hills are strewn with oaks
      as far as the eye can see….

kissing toes of a
 barn-red house, acres of grass
  stand at attention…
   John Deere rides the afternoon
    humming with satisfaction
    

under a pear’s shade 
 golden hound naps lazily …
  one eye slides open…
   for an occasional glance.... 
    on guard for squirrels who thieve

in time

budgies chatter

and canaries sing

voices raised

welcoming Spring

while daffodils sway in time

beyond the glass

her tail twitches

her throat constricts with strange sounds

just beyond the glass

the wild birds in flight taunt her
 
the caged bird looks on amused





*Honey, the cat, sits at the window making strange, threatening
noises at the birds outside. ignoring the love bird in a cage less than a foot to her left

hidden

hidden behind

  the lovebird's pretty plumage

    is a squawky voice

the once curious cat

   hides underneath the bed

The Finches

They're singing. They are.
The finches. They sing beauty.
That tree is their house.
How charming! Birds, music, tree.
And the sun, friendly, like them.

Splashing Dog

(This is a Tanka:  Japanese poem of five lines, the first and third composed of five
syllables and the others seven. In Japanese, tanka is often written in one straight line,
but in English and other languages, we usually divide the lines into the five syllabic
units: 5-7-5-7-7.)



Splashing Dog
    by Amy Swanson


Great drops of water
     fly vigorously from him!
Black hair glistening
     he gallops through the river,
     stops only to shake himself!

A Battle Rages

A battle rages
between beans and broccoli.
Sadly, no winner
emerges from this dark fog.
Perhaps I will blame the dog.

Tanka Cat's Behavior

soft hairy body
roll and kick in the green grass
of neighbors front yard
a dog in the summer's heat
behaves as a cat

Cat kisses dog
Dog looks at the camera
Embarrassed 
Dignity lost
What it would like to do
Is to kill the bloody mog.
