Summer’s here, the sun is shining, and kitties all over are soaking up the sun. They look so meditative, don’t they? I swear I’d love to look and feel half as peaceful as a cat.
Sometimes their eyes are closed, and other times they seem to be staring into space. I often wonder what they’re thinking. Well, I’ve finally figured it out: They’re mentally writing haiku poetry! It’s true. Cats are naturally artistic, and the warm sun is just the inspiration they need to bust out some lovely haikus.
Here are 10 summertime haikus written by cats … well, most are summertime-themed. They threw in a couple of regular old haiku poems for good measure.
What would your cat’s haiku look like? Give us a sample or two in the comments! Remember to use only 17 syllables!
