Haiku by Jack

It is summer time.
The kitchen floor is cooler.
That is where I sleep.

It is summer time.
There’s a vent in the bathroom.
Sometimes I sleep there.

It is summer time.
The sun makes the asphalt hot.
We go very slow.

It is summer time.
We get to eat some ice treats.
I like the hot dogs.

A Possum Tail in Three Parts

Standard

A Haiku Story by Jack

Part 1: Pre-Dawn Racket

Fresh in the pre-dawn
A Varmint in our backyard
We wake the neighbors

Part 2: Afternoon Raid

Quiet afternoon
Possum cornered: bark, bark, bark
Mom’s Varmint rescue

Part 3: The End of the Tail

Pest control men here
We are shut up in the house
They search the crawl space

Pest control men leave
No sign of den in our house
Bye bye, men and truck

Pest control men back
Dead possum found at neighbor’s
We did not do it.

RIP Possum

Love,
Jack

Fall Is Here

Standard


Fall is here, let’s give a cheer.
The hoomans like to scratch my ear.

Fall is here, hip-hip, hooray!
Let puppies come and stay all day.

Fall is here, the leaves come down.
I bring them in and see a frown.

Fall is here, it is so neat!
Especially when I get a treat!
