Haiku’s Diary

Day 6 in the Big Sister house 

My protestations at having to sleep alone at night have finally had an effect on the humans. Good cop, the one with lots of thick dark fur, not my big sister, Vega, but they do look similar), is with us all the time.  He talks a lot and lets us play.  He even lets us be a bit naughty and takes photos and moving pictures of us.  

He’s going to have to learn not to show them to bad cop though, because she tells him off for letting us be naughty!

B

ad cop doesn’t talk to us too much.  She says ‘no’, ‘sit’ and ‘good girl’ a lot and gives us treats when we’re good.  She looks more like me; she’s smaller that good cop and has multi-coloured fur.  She goes somewhere in the day and leaves good cop to look after us.   

She’s not all bad; she likes to tickle us and snuggle up in the evening, but goes a bit weird when she doesn’t get enough sleep! 

And that’s how my protestations have had an effect. 

Not only have I now got my very own teddy bear to snuggle up to, I also get to sleep in a new big comfy ‘basket’ with Vega.  She has lots of thick fur, is very warm to cuddle and she doesn’t beat me up at bedtime! 

There’s also another furry creature – a stripy one.  She’s not like me and Vega.  She eats different food (she gets lots of flavours – not fair!) and she wanders in and out of the house all day.  I don’t know where she goes. 

Rosie is very clever and can outsmart Vega.  

Yesterday, she let Vega chase her out of the house, then stopped just outside the back door.  Vega carried on running, and when she got to the end of the garden, looked very confused as to where Rosie had got to. (Rosie was sat very calmly on the patio wall).

I don’t think Rosie likes Vega as much as she likes me.  She snuggles up with me on bad cop’s lap.  I think me and Rosie are going to be very good friends. xxxx

Re: Reverse Reverse Haiku – I Will Try One Two (three four) – And See Just What I Can Do.

Days, forty, of rain, indeed –
Outside, just waiting;
Leave our high spirits dampened.

Indeed, rain of forty days
Waiting just outside;
Dampened spirits ‘hi!’ our leave.

Leave our high spirits dampened.
Outside, just waiting
Days, forty, of rain, indeed!

Dampened spirits ‘hi!’ our leave:
Waiting just outside,
In deed, rain of forty days.

A Ghost Story – A Reverse Poem (read it backwards and forwards)y

ghost house

The End

And the ghosts? They all lived happily ever after…

There was nothing there, but the sound of laughter.

The house was still, the people gone,

Around the rooms, just moonlight shone;

The door ajar, an entry made,

The shadows set, as life-lights fade

He had tiptoed in, was seen no more

Soft the knocks gently at the door,

One lost boy with laces trailing

One dark night there had come a’ calling

Just spirits live there, nothing else

Upon that hill still stands that house.

 

 

 

Upon that hill still stands that house;

Just spirits live there, nothing else.

One dark night there had come a’ calling

One lost boy, with laces trailing.

Soft the knocks gently at the door,

He had tiptoed in, was seen no more

The door ajar, an entry made,

The shadows set, as life-lights fade.

Around the rooms, just moonlight shone;

The house was still, the people gone,

There was nothing there, but the sound of laughter.

And the ghosts? They all lived happily ever after…
