Senryu, A furry bundle of kittens

Updated on January 29, 2012
always exploring profile image

I am a writer of poetry and fiction. I especially love flash fiction. My name is Ruby, and I live in Southern Illinois. I am a retired R.N.

Mama cat's love.

Sleeping peacefully

Basket of fluffy kittens

Intertwined, eyes closed

*****************************

Mama inspecting

Stretching, meowing, hungry

Nudging, suckling, sweet

********************************

Frisky, lovable

Tumbling, frolicking, playful

Lively romp away

********************************

Mama gathering

Bathing affectionately

Calm tranquillity

*****************************

Comments Please take time to watch the video. It is adorable.

      Hello b. Malin, I am so pleased you watched the video. I have watched it so many times and each time is sweeter. I love baby Kittens. My Son had the same experience as yours. I think it is a wonderful way for a child to see up close an animals love for their babies. Thank you so much for your beautiful comment...

      Mamma Cats Love...What a Beautiful Tribute, in a "Haiku" Poem. I Loved the Video and the Pictures "Always Exploring" what a Treat...And if we haven't experienced this in our Life time, we are missing out. Our cat had kittens when the boys were young, and it was a treat they will always remember.

      Hello Shimmering Dawn, I changed the title from haiku to senryu after the the subject matter. To me the Kittens are nature, but the directions are a human or animal is listed as senryu. It's quite confusing to me. Happy you enjoyed it..Thank you..Smiles

      I've never owned a cat, but dated many women who were as dismissive as one. However, these pictures are too cute. I may need to change my ways and be a cat owner...
