Poetry Month - Day 1: Random Haiku

For Day 1 of "30 Days of Poetry," you're supposed to do Concrete Poetry - using words and their physical formation to create poetry. However, I don't have a scanner here, so there's no way I could draw a picture sufficient to demostrate this type of poetry, so I've gone to the old standby - Haiku - to start the first day of Poerty Month.

It's not very good, but at least it's a start. And by writing it down for posterity, it will give me the chance to rework it at a later date . . .

Spring Saturday Morning

Random Cat stands poised
As bird music fills the air
Aching to burst out

Thin screen holds her back
Bringing fresh spring air inside
Scents of buds and grass

Who wants to stay in
When nature beckons out?
Both cat and girl agree.
