The Cat – Tanaga – June 28, 2015

Rooftop – at first light he walked
I think that if he had talked
He would have said:  “who are you?”
He wondered what I would do …

Eyes in eyes he walked by me
He was worried – plain to see
Pug-like face sleek silken coat
A white losange at his throat

Watching me he nearly slipped
My heart leapt he nearly tipped!
He looked down then looked at me
Across the red rooftop sea

Persian cat walked by at dawn
Thirty seconds then was gone
Chance encounter – eyes in eyes
Without hellos – no goodbyes.

Fibonacci- “kued” – August 3, 2014

Today for Carpe Diem’s Haiku Kai Special, I’m going to write a Fibo-Ku based on a Fibonacci Sequence …  if anyone remembers a Fibonacci is a mathematical sequence … 1 – 1 – 2 – 3 – 5 – 8 – 13 … as you can see the sequence is created by adding the numbers that precedes each other:

1 + 1= 2 … 2+1 = 3 … 3+2 = 5 etc.

Chévrefeuille for the Special calls this a Febo-Ku … obviously the syllable count will be 1 + 1 + 2 + 3 + 5 + 8  etc … This is Chèvrefeuille’s Fibo-Ku:

sun
moon
star light
the breeze
this summer morning
birds singing their beautiful songs –
young sparrows playing hide and seek in the dry sand of the garden

Here’s my try at another Fibo-Ku…

black
cat
saunters …
the alley,
stinks of rotting trash
dark – dank … refuse of ages past
innocent, the cat generates mad fearful feelings
its life represents humanity’s superstitious fears of forgotten memories.
