Haiku Cats by Joan McNerney

Haiku Cats – take your pick of the litter


the gingersnap cat stares as
I get undressed.

What does this cat think
strumming his tail with such ease
to fugues of Bach?
Shut Eye
Black and white kitten
lying under clothesline in
soft circles of sleep.
Street Walker

Calico cat
curving corners
against the cold.
Free Throw

A tiger cat with
big green eyes
tosses balls of yarn.

Joan McNerney’s poetry has been included in numerous literary magazines such as Seven Circle Press, Dinner with the Muse, Moonlight Dreamers of Yellow Haze, Blueline, and Halcyon Days.  Three Bright Hills Press Anthologies, several Poppy Road Review Journals, and numerous Kind of A Hurricane Press Publications have accepted her work.  Her latest title is Having Lunch with the Sky and she has four Best of the Net nominations.
