Tree-climbing Ari
She scrambles up the elm
Wisconsin quivers.

Above the blue zone
Sun lateral over Mars
rising.  Cats take note!

Cat Haiku Duel!

this here is heaven
bookend cats in a warm room:
what more could I want?

  (by Erin Mack)

No cat allergy
this would be my sole request
and some ripe peaches.

(from Tales of Persepolis)
scholarship's funding
by gravy, curds and french fries
such be our future.

(Tales of Persepolis)

Electricity Senryu

After four long hours
my ipod synchronizes.
Apple is cruel

(From Tales of Persepolis)

Forest Creature Haiku

Mask'd in the Forest
Alert for lurking danger
or just time for lunch?

(from Tales of Arborea)

lakeside haiku

Science key to all
Measurement the first task of truth
This water is cold.

(From Tales of Arborea)

Bakery Senryu

Desperate and wan
I hope for a plain baguette-
a damsel brings joy.

River Haiku

Down by the river
The knight stands, cool as the snow,
Winter has no sway.

(from Tales of Persepolis)

Blithe Disapproval Senryu

Painted Salome
Ignores all the cameras
o blasé statue!

(Walking Poems)
