March Back…and Fourth!

It’s haiku time – mainly about cats!
Majestic feline,
queen of all she surveys:
a filthy bathroom
A blue tardigrade
peeks out of the blue coat hood
on a blue Monday
Window dreaming cat
it goes without saying that
Walter is naughty
Marmalade Harry
yawns majestically at
his adoring fans
Marmalade kitty
stares at his kick tube toy and
contemplates mayhem
Singing that old song:
“I’m leaving on a jet plane…”
Toob Cat sez: hoo carez?
Winging the way home
I didn’t want to come back…
Don’t jump off the plane!

Back in 2019…

Captivated by
snow covered branches in a
winter wonderland
Poor Doctor kitty,
soon to be victim of a
soot panther attack
O tractor sublime
abandoned and alone
it’s unnatural
Little shadow cat
her amber eyes watching me
in silent judgment
The sunshine without
bears no reflection upon
the gloom within
See the mini mouse?
Isn’t it adorable?
Where is the Mickey?

And that wraps up the haiku poetry from 2019!

Manifestations of a chronic boondoggler…in verse

My brain is weird.
Little ball of fluff
my cat almost did you in
now you’re in prison
Hark! the herald cried
something dead over yonder
the vultures circle
O caterpillar
trail-way trundling along
little woolly bear
I agree with Calvin;
tiger-stripe cats’ fur is mere
Brothers together
hold fast to family ties
cardinal virtue
Pink feathery tufts
beneath amber sky at dusk
One side makes you tall
the other, even shorter
both sides will kill you

Haiku, Can You?

Time to wend your way
through turning pathways of a
sparkly labyrinth
Too humid outside
to take a lovely long walk
which makes me grumpy
Precarious perch
little grey cat looking down
decides to return
Can you imagine
Adorning your human feet
with elfin slippers?
Bold sunny faces
bear the plain name of Susan
of the blackened eyes
Crane neck to the side
gaze at sandhill wanderers
fuzzy grey babies
Morning spectacle:
upon the cast-iron chair-back
perch three feathered friends

Haiku time again


Pitter patter rain comes down

Thor swings his mighty hammer

Thunder quakes the sky


Misty, muggy air

The early morning sun sweats

Dewdrops glistening

Divebombing warbirds

Creating nasty messes

Need magical stuff.


Crouching on the rock

Brown spots dapple slimy skin

Frog watches then leaps






Hop, scurry, cricket

Tries to hide in the bathroom

I caught it anyway


Time to wend your way

Through turning pathways of a

Sparkly Labyrinth


Too humid outside

To take a lovely, long walk

This makes me grumpy


“Why is the rum gone?”

Demands Captain Jack Sparrow.

‘Cause you drank it, fool!

Lonely cracked willow

Supports birds in fragile boughs

Plum water yet beckons

TMNT and MLP #1

Imagine a cartoon crossover episode involving the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT) and My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic (MLP:FiM).

Now, which pony character do you think would each of the TMNT characters choose for a mount?

The first pairing is obvious to me:

Major party animals coming our way!


And Pinkie Pie. What mayhem

Shall ensue today?

TMNT & MLP haiku #1

Well, how about that? Do any of you have a “perfect pairing” in mind? You can use any characters in the TMNT (Nickelodeon CGI version) and the MLP:FiM universes. Please comment with your “character pair” and explain your reasoning – serious or hilarious, so long as it makes some sort of logical sense.

Stay tuned for more mash-up silliness!
