Since my last Sunday Scribblings was dedicated to my dogs, here is an ode to my black cat (in haiku form):

twitching his long tail
Jiji lifts a furred eyelid
and bites in a flash

and in Japanese (not exact b/c the syllables wouldn't be 5-7-5):

nagai-no happo
Jiji-ga heya miru
shoshaku suru

Thinking back, the last haiku I wrote in Japanese was about dogs... and that was in 1992.

I like the cat and the cat haiku!

The lighting in the picture makes it look like the cat is wearing an eye patch. How sinister would that be? Lovely haiku.

Well done.

Becca said...

Very nice! The photo gives the cat a particularly menacing look.
