Three Short Poems

Sloth, Thy Name is Cat

--a haiku series--

Asleep in the sun

Warm golden rays slanting down

Sparkle on soft fur


Waking for a moment

Stretching impossibly long

Then curling back, snug


Oh, how delicious

Napping in the afternoon

Sloth, thy name is Cat.

Promise Fulfilled

Just one piece of mail

Today, but it's the one that

I've been waiting for

A Pair O' Dactyls About Pterodactyls

Flippety Flappety

Big flyin' reptiles

Once dominated

The skies over Earth



Dig up the fossils and

Museum curators

Give 'em a berth!

(for more information about the double dactyl form of poetry, see )

Nobody likes dinosaurs around here, huh?

I enjoyed your poems. I had not heard of the dactyl for of poetry before but they are cool.

I just love the rhythm of it! And the fact that the word "paleontologists" had the exact right rhythm to fit in perfectly was such luck, because I was absolutely wedded to my silly title.
