Only A Dream

                                                 Early_ quiet house
                                     Warm, snug under covers _dreams
                                           Kiss, hugs, snuggles_ah!
                                             Mist rises from creek
                                      As dreams take me to seek love
                                            Snuggles warmth tickle

                                           Kiss, kiss, kiss, snuggles
                              Waking daylight streams through blinds
                                         Princess! quit licking__~~

My Cat is Not Stupid

whiskers twitch
there's a dog in the litter
hello floor

The haughty feline
Though you freely give her love
Flaunts it as her choice

My Cat?

My cat seems to me.
Isn’t mine to own at all...
Rather like borrowed.

Really needed cat
or dog companionship this
stressful, hurtful day.

[There are days when nothing heals better than hugging your dog or stroking your kitty, and not having one around can leave a hole in your world when you need one.]

Senryus My Cat

With claws he does prick.
And disdain of eye so quick.
Cat and I don't click.

I think I'm truly hated.
He seems quite jaded.

Hey! Don't pee on that!
All my stuff smells like cat.
Thanks a lot you brat!

Beg not for my food.
Stop pouting! I'm not in mood.
Go away and brood.

Soft kitty in sun.
I'll rub his tummy. Seems fun.
His heart I have won.

Bedtime little friend.
You can sleep at my foot's end.
This war not at end.

(Yes, I know that these are not as dark as typical senryu... But "haiku" would be even
more along the lines of false advertising!)

Dancing eyes look back
A flirt, a smile, a wag
Cat food breath again

Walking together
Connected to mother Earth
Time to pick up poop

Dance, dance, dance
See the leash! BE the leash!
Curse you, it's raining.

Seat belt means one thing
The sounds! The sights! The breeze!
Someone farted.

Just pooped on my sleeve

When I’m feeling like a sap
