For the I Doodle, You ‘Ku challenge, on Aubrie Cox’s Yay Words blog:
he in his world
she in hers
A new month, a new challenge. I am looking forward to taking part in another of Aubrie Cox’s I Doodle, You ‘Ku Challenges. I will be posting my haiku responses in the comments section of each of her blog posts, as well as on this blog. To get the full effect of the haiku matched with the doodle though, you will need to click on the link to Aubrie’s blog to see her wonderful (and often whimsical) doodles.
NaHaiWriMo- 2/22/13 (prompt: living room)
two cats curled up
in the living room chair
…winter morning. the scent of maple syrup wafting through the house. a big gray cat purring on the bed beside me..
NaHaiWriMo- Day 22
two cats perched on a vent
I can’t decide if this one is too obscure or not. My two cats like to settle themselves on the furnace vent by the front door, and they take a rapt interest in watching the birds fly in and out of the Kousa dogwood tree. Judging from the cats’ twitching tails and chattering, I imagine their motives are less than honorable. And perhaps it’s only my imagination, but the birds seem to derive a malicious pleasure in taunting the cats, by seeing how close to the window they can fly!
The second I place my hand on the doorknob, Shadow is right there at my ankles,
intent on making his escape. I want to tell him it’s a wild world out there
for cats, with a hungry band of coyotes roaming nightly,and that I’m only
keeping him indoors for his own good, but would he believe me?
