Buffy Cat here with a special call and respond haiku jam with Kuruk Babybear.

I met Kuruk, a snowdog, when Cooper the Cattledog, Tuxedo Jack and I started blogging. Since his blog is called Haiku by Ku, I guess you know what it’s about. I had the idea that I might be able to speak in poetry and he encouraged me to try it. That was 23 haiku Thursdays ago. As Ku would say, Wooohooowooooo!

A week ago Kuruk invited me to do a spring themed call and respond jam with him. We’ve emailed back and forth since. For a D.O.G. he’s pretty great.

Without further ado, here’s our jam!


Springtime weather’s here

Did it ever go away?

The snow never came

Snow or no snow

Few  birds to watch in winter

Spring is for feathers


Down feathers of babes

Drift about in the warm breeze

Flowers blossoming

Springtime is sneeze time

With tall grasses to hide in

The rain comes at night


Rain, rain, go away

Don’t like my fur to get wet

Sun and cool is best

Cool is nice for Ku

I am a creature of heat

Basking in light divine


On hot sunny days

I dig holes to stay cool in

And play with ice cubes

Prowling through the neighborhood

Scents and sounds heighten


Hot nights snow pups sleep

Mama and furblings nearby

Dream of winter nights

I dream in Mom’s arms

Silly cattledog is near

Maybe he needs love

KuInHoletinyKisses and cuddles

Ear scritches and tummy rubs

Love grows in the Spring

Ku you fill my heart

Your fur could serve as my nest

But too hot for spring!
