This is for The NaisaiKu Challenge. What is a NaisaiKu? The explanation is here, but mainly it’s a way to play with words and phrases using a 5-7-5 haiku as a starting point. Clever blogger that I am, I decided to combine this with some good old fashioned Friday Cat Blogging.

I attempted all 3 varieties of NaisaiKu, and like how they work together increasing the paranoia.

And, yes, I realize that the picture doesn’t match the words, but that’s only because Simon prefers to keep his eyes closed. But he is awake. Waiting.

  1. Love the humour here James, and that’s quite a scary thought in the poetry.
    Nice bit of CatiKu!

  2. In his dreams he’s a real jaguar.

  3. Hi James, thanks for playing along and doin’ the NaisaiKu.. Challenge! on week one.
    Love the cat picture and I can almost feel the piercing eyes of the Jaguar measuring the meat on my bones, I think he’s just about to pounce!!

  4. Sweet Talking Guy, I like the term Catiku. I may have to try a bit of HoundKu next week.

    Stan Ski, We’ve gone round and round trying to figure out what he thinks he is. We settled on jaguar. We think we’re right.

    Wendy, This was fun. I’ll likely play with this some more. Perhaps for week 2?

  5. I like all the versions! Great flexibility with this form.

  6. interesting … loved the way you tried all different cominations..

  7. what a lovely cat photo, very zen. I like this poetic form too, interesting to play around with haiku.
