This week’s two word prompt for the Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge are the words Pet & Play. This challenge is offered weekly by Ronovan Hester at Ronovan Writes. I enjoyed participating last week and look forward to joining every week that I can. Ronovan encouraged us to use a picture of our pets at play if we had one.
As I began thinking and writing, I came up with at least four haiku. I tried to narrow it down to one, but I had to keep two.
Pets at Play
Cat sits like a queen
Watching dogs investigate
Oh what games pets play!
Furry, brown and black
Pets play never ending games
Cat thinks she is queen
Which do you like best – I or II? Share in the comments if you want to choose or even add your own.
We actually have one more cat who lives inside. He is a Maine Coon named Sebastian. He doesn’t play much, but he loves to jump on the kitchen counters when we aren’t looking. We are trying hard to break him of that habit. Other than that he is a sweet cat.
Maybe you’d like to join in the haiku challenge, too. If so check out Ronovan’s website for all the details. Every Monday a new two word prompt is given. You have until the following Sunday to write your haiku. This week’s prompt is found HERE.

Gayl, this was just the cheer I needed tonight! I cannot choose between the two poems, because they are both so fun! Your “queenly” cat is so typical of the many cats I had growing up. Thank you for the sweet thoughts you bring to my day! Blessings to you my friend! xo
Oh, Bettie, I’m glad I brought you some cheer! That makes me happy. Glad you liked the poems, too. Thank you for stopping by and encouraging me.
blessings to you! xo
I think I like the first one! I am not a cat person, but I think Maine Coons are so pretty!
Thanks for your input, Melissa! I think I like the first one better, too, but it’s hard to decide. I don’t really prefer to have pets in the house, but this cat is actually my son’s although he isn’t here much, so it’s like the cat is ours.
Anyway, I agree that Maine Coons are pretty. He’s also very gentle.
Thanks for stopping by and blessings to you!
How fun, I like #2 the best. Cats are like queens. 🙂
Thanks for commenting, Amanda! Yes, they do act like queens, don’t they? 🙂
Have a great rest of your week. Blessings to you!
I’m such a cat person. Love your kitty. So cute!
Thanks Tara! Blessings to you! 🙂
I like both of them. I like YOU best! And, Riesling at lunch? 😉
Thanks, Susan! You’re such a great friend! Yes, I did enjoy Riesling at lunch. 🙂
Blessings to you! xo
Oh what a choice! I love them both and I adore the photos. Thank you for sharing your poetic gift, Gayl. Hailku are such fun to do! Blessings on your creativity. xo
Joy, thank you so much! You are such an encourager. Glad you love the photos and the haiku! I do enjoy writing haiku. It’s one of my favorites! Thank you for your blessings, too.
Blessings and hugs! xo
I love the first one but they’re both good. Great pictures too. 🙂
Thanks so much, Vashti! Glad you stopped by. Have a great weekend!
So many cats we had, tumbling and chasing and playing from one end of the house to the other, when I was a child. Clowns, they were.
Thanks for visiting, Lizl! Yes, cats can really be funny to watch sometimes. Glad you have such fun memories!
