Here's a CHALLENGE for readers. My sister-in-law Emily wrote the haiku below, perhaps about Spike, and suggests others may want to write a pet haiku too. They are somehow both easy and difficult. Easy because they are short, difficult because you count syllables and you want to say something clever.
Try it if you wish, and comment. Here's the form (as best I understand it):
-should be nature themed (but don't worry about that)
-does not have to rhyme
-3 lines: 5 syllables first, 7 syllables second and 5 syllables third line.
One large lazy cat
Rolling on the comforter
proudly shows belly.
(Spike and Penny)
