under afternoon sunshine
is it really spring?

Ocean Haiku

hazy morning beams,
refractions through lapping waves
brighten the blue depths

– Submitted to pure haiku for the month of February’s Ocean theme. It did not make the cut but I wanted to share it with you all anyway.

Winter’s Morn

rhythmic dripping of
icicles in winter sun –
a slow morning burn

Just a Little Chat

Mother chose a magazine from the stack. She flipped pages and sipped her juice. My tail twitched uncontrollably. The pigeon stared at me. I remained calm. I couldn’t get to him this time with the window closed between us. “I only want to talk!” I meowed and my claws popped out involuntarily.

Night Play

Leftover raindrops play on windowpanes, refracting morning sunbeams; evidence of nature’s overnight shenanigans.
