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.
ear splitting shrieking
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!
