December at Casa Lilo (3 Haiku)

lilosophieDecember 10, 2012

Frosty morning
descending icy steps
beware of falling

Dog runs out
slides on slippery deck
flies right off

Cat at window
observes with amusement
prefers warm room

Even without the photo, your haiku(s) paint a descripture, clear, word picture. The cat is definitely the smart one, don't you think? :>)

Even without your picture of the kitty I could see your outside. Wish I had your gift of words.

I agree, you do have a gift of words.

heart faced kitty :)

I love the haikus. I especially can envision the dog sliding off. Skidding to below. Oops! I bet he was shocked. HA! Poor lil' fella. (((hugs to puppy doggy)))

Rob, you don't know my dog! It's a she and weighs 45+ lbs and has outgrown puppy-hood a long time ago.
Thank you for reading and liking the Haikus, one of my poet friends keeps saying that everything can be expressed as poetry, and I guess he's correct - although Maximus caught and ate a wood-rat last night and I was sweeping rat-guts off the deck this morning - can't think of anything poetic about that :)

Oh I call all of them puppy-doggies. I love them! Sorry about calling her a him. Don't know why I don't remember that? Hm. I always remember Sassy, Digby, and Scoop... Must add your lady to memory. Getting older. Not old yet, but the mind is beginning to rust shut.
