Kitties on the Savannah: A Haiku


Here is a photo I took of our two cats, Jezebel and Beebee, lazing in the backyard (the savannah) underneath Mexican Bamboo.

Below is a haiku inspired by the photo. Please share a haiku that comes to you as you view the photo. (A traditional haiku is 3 lines: 5 syllables, 7 syllables and 5 syllables.)

Savannah kitties…

Zen, docile, they purrrrrrrrrrr with love: 

“Come close little bird.”

P.S. Would you like six months of free spiritual direction/spiritual guidance? In order to complete the spiritual direction certificate program I’m taking, I need to offer six hour-long sessions at no charge. Please contact me if you or someone you know is interested. For more information, check out my page on spiritual guidance.

    Lola, sleepy cat.
    Please do not disturb my nap.
    Claws will pierce your lap.

      Love this Cheryl! Jezebel loves to make biscuits on my lap or chest or leg, but those claws do hurt.

    Mother and daughter,

    Shadows and light in bright sun

    Comfort sleepy heads
