Poetry--Had Enough Katku?

This is the last Friday of Katku before I'll take a break. They are kind of addictive--at least as far as creating them is concerned.

The Poetry Friday Round-Up is taking place at My Juicy Little Universe. Next week, it will be here!

  1. I'm still sad about my Pearl, so katku is kind of rough on this cat-less writer (more so because we probably aren't getting another, as we have a family cat allergy problem). That said, I love what you did with the images, and the cattitude is just right.

    1. So sorry about Pearl. I still find myself mourning my Smudgie, and she's been gone more than two years. :-(

  2. Love love your katku! Sorry to hear you're taking a break from them. Again, ingenious graphics, and all three poems capture the essence of "cat-ness." I think the first might be my favorite.

    1. It'll only be a short break. Next week I'm hosting the Round-Up, so I'm including a strong-woman-no-cat poem.

  3. The artistic placement is wonderful, Diane. That "look" with the haiku in the final one, hard to forget! But I love the first, "winter sun", remembering my former cat dozing in a patch of sunlight. If stopping, take a whirl in this at least once in a while!

    1. I have to admit, in the winter, you'll find me in any spot of sun I can find.

    1. Without the art, they'd just be cat heads!

  6. Wow. These must be excellent, because they are provoking a feeling of discomfort! I'll try to go back and see the ones I've missed.

    1. I will, it's just that I need to spend some time looking at art to find more usable pictures.

    1. They're not gone for good--I'm just taking a little break so that everyone doesn't get bored!

  9. These need to be a book! Those first two could be our cat!

  10. As a devoted cat-lady, and a poetry lover, I adore these katku, and I will miss them!

  11. Each one here gets a bit creepier, and the last one is wonderful! They'd definitely be good in a book.

  12. Continued awesomeness. Glad they'll be prowling back later for a little more summer fun... Mrrow.
