Night Sounds

AnimalsToday my haiku is from October 28th of my book A Haiku Book of Days for Animals, Birds, Insects and Other Creatures, one of a 7-book series. The haiku topic for today is “Night Sounds”:

skitter sounds at night
mice inside the kitchen walls
better them than rats

It’s Haiku Friday again. For the past twenty years or so, it has been my practice to write one haiku every day. Every Friday I share a haiku here, about whatever topic I happen to choose. I invite you to write a haiku on this topic too, and share it with me and the readers of this blog. Just write it in the Comments below. The only rules are: 1) your haiku must be about the named topic; 2) you must follow the 5-7-5 syllable format; 3) no obscenities or hate (I will delete those). That’s it.

If you’re interested in the story of how The Haiku Book of Days series came to be, check out my previous blog post here. You can purchase this book on Amazon here.

mice can squeeze themselves
into holes the size of dimes
what a handy skill
