A heck of a haiku

The following haikus are by Tristram DeRoma of Shelton

They prove animals not only inspire love, they also inspire poetry.

Dog is God reversed,
I think, scooping up your mess--
a cruel joke indeed.

Little fuzzy dog
licks my face and snuffs my hair.
Sunday afternoon.

My cat
Patiently my cat
waits for the sunbeam's return--
ears cocked, tail twitching…..

Where did that cat go.
One more black shoe than normal
gives his game away.

Yellow eyes appear
in the jumble of black shoes.
Time for your bath, cat.

Rustling fall leaves
remind me that you’re still gone--
and I am still here.
