Two Shoes Tuesday - a practice in Haiku

I am the first to acknowledge that I am not a poet.  I don't often understand what they are saying, much less trying to condense thoughts into a few words.  It's not my style, I tend to ramble on and on.
But in keeping with Two Shoes Tuesday I am attempting to write some poetry.  This is done in the form of haiku.

The prompt choices were to use either green or believe.

Here goes:

Content with her food
I believe she is replete
 How sweetly she sleeps

This is the photo that inspired the poem

Long Live the Queen of Haiku


  1. Hay, you did a Haiku ... mark up another talent. You are just blooming all over the place. Glad to see you doing some writing ... your posts are awesome and funny and clever, so why not put it somewhere where more will appreciate you. Great job, Queen of Growth ...

  2. I love poetry. The more you read it, the more you will understand format and flow. I'd like to read more stories from you, too. You have a lot of interesting things to say & experiences to share!

  3. I loved the sentiment of these lines. Nothing says satiated and content like a kitty who has feasted and is settled in for a nice snooze! Your photo was adorable... loved the empty plate combo. :-) Don't forget to add a link to this post over at Two Shoes Tuesday, there's some nice folks there that would enjoy reading this too!

  4. I enjoy some poetry. You did a good job with this one. Matches your photo perfectly. I have never tried Haiku. Hmmm, I'll have to have a look at this stuff. You have a wonderful night, hugs, Edna B.
