12-6
cats in the hall
shifting to find
the last afternoon light

12-7
all day the old cat
follows a spot of sun
down the hall

12-8
all my raked leaves
now a pile
at the back door

12-10
cold wind
street empty
a faceless penny

12-12
a cat's balance-
if you stop petting me,
I'll fall

12/21
rusted clouds
seventy miles per hour
towards the coming dawn
A winter set.

Winter 2012 Haiku Set by ~RedDragonfly is a spectacular example of the calming nature of haikus. A haiku does not need to follow a 5-7-5 syllable pattern and the form is wonderfully executed here. ( Featured by Nichrysalis )

The first three are a person's the last two are a cat's point of view! Am I right?

Well the last one is certainly what I think my Ezio is thinking. Whether he really plans these things is for him alone to know.

The last one is my favorite for the way it twists the perspective. Rereading the rest, I now have to ask myself if the narrator is watching the cats or being one of them. :D
