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

Pluto

tabby cat slinking
around the house, looking stealth
pouncing and prancing

lover, neat and sweet
purring for a stroke around
the neck and ears

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

Stray cat



                        Stray cat under moonlight.
                        Looks up, pauses, and moves on.
                        No regrets...

Caturday

                                laying down for the 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 shining 

                              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
                               the sun gets in eyes
                             lingering heat cat sighs

EROTIC HAIKU 1- 21

 HAIKU ON LOVE # 1

You leave me after we make love
Moonbeam falls 
A poet shares my sorrow


HAIKU ON LOVE # 2
She coils him
Desolate
Autumn waits

HAIKU ON LOVE # 3
A love bruise
Wicked parrot
Season of rain

HAIKU ON LOVE# 4

His words were diamonds
Wizard of love phrases 
He stole my garments

HAIKU ON LOVE # 5

She offered her warm breasts
To her lover in winter night
Icy wind roared 

HAIKU ON LOVE # 6

Two leaves are tangled
The tree meditates
He does not know our raptures

HAIKU ON LOVE # 7

Words are lost
Glances weak
Glaciered infinity

HAIKU ON LOVE # 8

My neighbour’s wife
Pulls me
To a sobbing counter



HAIKU ON LOVE # 9

Sighs heavy, hidden moon
Moans, pleasures of the night  
Cruel kisses bleed 

HAIKU ON LOVE # 10

She fell on my chest
Stunned 
By the dart of love


HAIKU ON LOVE # 11

Hold on some more and hold on
Until the fire is put out
And he would close his eyes


HAIKU ON LOVE # 12

I would wager
He would leave soon
With a trail of cinnabar

HAIKU ON LOVE # 13

He was a noodle
As her eyes were nearly shut
And bottom of the sea sloshed

HAIKU ON LOVE # 14

I had to hold her like a python
Brute yes I am, I couldn’t lose time
To be ambivalent

HAIKU ON LOVE # 15

His tired legs staggered
He fell again on her bosom
God is so ungracious

HAIKU ON LOVE # 16

Incredible cavern
Big black cat walks on curling passages
In search of snail trail




HAIKU ON LOVE # 17

Last night’s sleep
Washed out 
My lover’s petting 

HAIKU ON LOVE # 18

My husband’s ancient kiss
Fades away
Like charming baubles

HAIKU ON LOVE # 19

A young man hid behind his shadow
At the edge of the river
My bath aroma seeped through his skull

HAIKU ON LOVE # 20

My wife was parabolic
She could not make love
Before her voyage to comet

HAIKU ON LOVE # 21

I can go down her slit
If the river gets more time
To watch my owl

Senryus 11 and 12


#-11
Attic floorboards creak
Something seeks a memory
Sleep and leave it be



#-12
I'm sure there are two
Another cat sneaked inside
My cat helps it hide

CANINE REVENGE

Some dog taught me this,
your head sinks and your butt floats.
It’s called cat paddling!

WITH CATS IT'S SECRET

WITH CATS IT’S SECRET

stays on fingertips
the softness as though rubbed off
a quiet presence

the expectation
in her simple meowing
and i understand
	
the dog is open
not so the domestic cat
so still and secret

in that pea green boat
the owl and the pussy cat
at sea with secrets

kitty cat has been
to london to see the queen
what did he there?

F O R E V E R

Gulf breeze chime my chimes
What I say here pass it on
Spring fling beckoning.

Infatuation -
A cat chases its own tail
Love begins at home.

Elusive wind blows
Bliss is like falling in love
I claim nostalgia.

Wrapped kisses with rose
A lonely hunter shivers 
Love last a life time.

Poet's Dozen - Life With Snickers

Life with Snickers
(four short poems in one)

our one-year-old dog
lapping up toilet water -
what a potty mouth

That dog is also into smut;
he likes to sniff poor kitty’s butt.

He hears my slightest movements in the kitchen.
His paws appear at the counter where I’m preparing food.

Later, Snickers comes to meIn his mouth he bears a rope.
He wants to play that silly game I dread.
He stares at me, big brown eyes filled with hope.
Tug of war I play with himWhen it’s time for bed,
The cat and I can’t rest till Snickers has laid down his head.


Written 11/4/15 for the "A Poet's Dozen" Poetry Contest of the Silent One

Eyes

HAIKU #12,084-12,087.............................................................EYES

Have you ever seen
Iris of an eye so black
Its pupil is knight

I know a small boy
Bestowed with one cat pupil
And one most human.

Brown skin brown iris
Irises changing colors
Like chameleons.

Mean eyes sexy eyes
I have seen sad eyes singing
Tugging at my heart.

Louie's Pets

Louie had a dog It didn't like his cat much Louie sold the cat Louie liked his dog The dog was always faithful They always played ball Louie had a horse It didn't like his dog much Louie sold the dog Louie rode all day He never missed his dog He never looked back He plucked a flower One fine day in the meadow His heart was strucken I can see your grin I can tell what you're thinking I can read your mind He misses his pets But Louie has no regrets Except for his cat

A skeleton dances On top of an old coffin Evil pours through him A ghost prowls on by Looking for someone to scare Who’s the next victim A black cat sits near Superstition is his craze People fear his kind Bats scurry about By the moonlight they go on Seeking fearful kids The Jack-O-Lanterns Sit with their huge ginning smiles Wishing you Happy… A Happy Halloween!!

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 chanceThe 
experiment unimpeded, the cat will die, the question is only whenThe 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 aliveAnd probability ends the 
earlier mechanistic view of both God and His creationGod 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.

WONDERFUL SURPRISE

           WONDERFUL SURPRISE

              where’s our white kitty?
       on the plush    blue bathroom rug
                   suckling 5 kittens


              missed early breakfast
                     imagine our amazement
              mamma cat      new borns


                   it makes one wonder
                 how our tiny white kitty
                     had 5 black kittens?


              talking minuscule
                    a tiny   tiny kitten
                           hid under my thumb

3 Spring Haiku

Pill bugs wet with dew
as crawling gray domes mirror
green turf, salmon sun.

Copter seeds whirling,
a squirrel chases paper
treasure for her nest.

Young cat mock-tweeting,
wily sparrows unheeding,
paws press on the screen.

Trick Or Treat

Spooks ring my doorbell

   Scare me out of my britches

      I bribe them with treats

Imps come by the gross

   They get tons of bubble gum

      I keep the Snickers

I'm threatened with tricks

   My cat bares his fangs at them

      He likes Snickers too

Category Seven

after Katrina
bodies floated in the tide…
     rooftop watchers feared

storm surge broke the dam
New Orleans underwater…
     both lives and homes lost

city known for saints
by demonic sea consumed…
     more than a Cat Five

nature lashing out
protesting the harm we do…
    history repeats

JOURNEY HAIKU



JOURNEY HAIKU #1

Memory lapses
Random forgetting;
Signs of wisdom

~~~~~~~~~


Wayside flowers
Unknown adornments;
Beauty hides well

~~~~~~~~~


Flu bout route
Dizzy dazzle drips;
Body aches level

~~~~~~~~~


Two teacups
Hot green tea brew;
Poignant fragrance

~~~~~~~~


Empty corridors
Slant of moonlight;
Shadows dance

~~~~~~~~~


TV sitcom
Korean drama tells;
Mesmerised audience

~~~~~~~~~


This old book
Smell of ancient wood;
Stiff mental foliage

~~~~~~~~~


Sidewalk cafe
Eye contact hurls;
Love sculpts passion

~~~~~~~~~


Stray cat basking
On moonbeams;
Wailing to enchantment

~~~~~~~~~


Old couple strolling
Wrinkled hands holding;
Ancient serenade

~~~~~~~~~


Busy feet meet
Intersect at crossroad;
Silence speaks loud

~~~~~~~~~

LITTLE PEOPLE

LITTLE PEOPLE

a rustling outside?
(just leaves in the breeze)
                snickering

my shot of jack daniels
gone!
tiny burp    giggle

my daughter 
    crying
      her tea set missing

coffee spilled
        cat hisses
footprints on my toast

invisible?
no
very quick!

strange -
smoke out the chimney
of her doll house
