Dog Haiku – Cat Haiku

There is a cute website called TravelingDogs.com with a very good selection of jokes, quotes, stories and more. Among the plethora of dogdom were a few dog and cat haiku. Here are just a few for your poetic pleasure. I enjoy these because of the inherent truth of their content and economy of words.

Cat Haiku   Dog Haiku
You never feed me.
Perhaps I'll sleep on your face.
That will sure show you.
   I am your best friend,
Now, always, and especially
When you are eating.
 
Grace personified.
I leap into the window.
I meant to do that.
   Today I sniffed
Many dog butts - I celebrate
By kissing your face.
 
Blur of motion, then --
Silence, me, a paper bag.
What is so funny?
   I love my master;
Thus I perfume myself with
This long-rotten squirrel.

What IS that odor?
Dog fart wafting on the breeze.
Puppy, content, snores.
