Poetry Friday -- Sneaky Cat



HE THINKS WE DON'T KNOW WHERE HE'S BEEN

from a basement adventure --
cobwebs on his head

  2. We just got a cat in October, and are learning all about feline ways. I love the moment with your sneaky cat.

  3. "He Thinks We Don't Know Where He's Been" catches the feline guilty - with the wispy goods.
    Just like a sneaky (but sweet) cat.

  4. Sneaky indeed! Cats are so quiet - my dog, on the other hand, is quite noisy and always lets us know where she has been. =)

  5. I have one of those sneaky cats too! Love your haiku. I'm so glad I got to meet you at NCTE. I wish we had been able to chat a bit more. I was so in awe of all the poets, my mind was mush! : )

  7. I sometimes come back from my own adventures with cobwebs on my head (well, actually, IN my head...!) Love your haiku, Mary Lee.

  9. I don't know how you can choose a favorite! I think you should post ALL of your haiku here-- you have written so many great ones! I love the way you use the title-you've probably noticed it's a trick I have stolen!

  13. Ha! We actually DIDN'T know where our sneaky cat was getting that smear of dirty dust on her white nape--but she's been up in the basement ceiling right under the heating ducts!
