the poise of a cat
as it springs onto my lap
vibrating purrs

Mojo relaxing

My response to Carpe Diem #1816: kittens

This Friday will be the last day of February and Carpe Diem’s month of love, in which we’ve written about several kinds of Love; today our challenge is to create a haiku, tanka or other Japanese poetry form about animal love, especially kittens.

    1. Thank you, Cara! After years of being the only one the cats responded to, they have recently taken to vying for my husband’s lap – but they still sleep on my hip or by my feet.


  1. I find my cat’s purrs particularly relaxing when I have writer’s block and getting frustrated. However he does also have a habit of walking over my laptop when I am in the middle of writing. Can’t count how many times I have double checked a story and found random letters, numbers and symbols and the end of a paragraph.
