Cats in Love: a #haiku 

This week Haiku Horizons offers up the word “cat” for the weekly prompt. Of late I’ve been trying to be a little more “traditional” in some of my haiku so I looked for a kigo with “cat” and sure enough “cats in love” is one! So, I thought I’d go with the traditional aspect and stretch for a little humor, too.

echoes through the still night air

cats in love – or heat

The verdict: Did I make it work (traditional and humorous)? I reckon the readers will let me know! 


  1. There is a spelling mistake eat, I think you meant ear. I make them myself and like when someone tells me so I hope you don’t mind. Cats can be so loud when in love it’s amazing! Lol!
