Little Thieves

Clever little Cairns,

They soon find the perfect way

To capture our hearts!


Close Call

Toad leaps, the cairn strikes

Bitter spray, mouth fills with foam

head shakes, toad escapes


The walk

We go for a walk

I must forge the way ahead.

I must take the lead!


Curiosity killed the ?

Oh, there is a bug!

I wonder what he tastes like?

I think i must know........


My Heart

He comes and he goes,

a right mischievious sneak,

yep, there went my heart.


Love Me, Please

New pup in the house,

slipping quietly, he comes

please Abe, please love me.


From the weather channel

It was just a blur

of silver and brindle fur

Hurricane season


It's Not Heaven Without You

Outside Heaven's gates,

chewing celestial bone,

patiently I wait


The big question:

How to train a cairn

It seems to be the question.

Does anyone know?



Prey into the cairns

Small in stature, brave in heart

Cairns goto the prey


This is a poll for choosing a finalist in the Cairn Haiku contest. There are five polls - you may vote once in each of the five polls. The top vote-getter in each individual poll will be placed in a final poll to determine the overall favorite Cairn haiku. This poll will close at 8:00 PM server time (Pacific Daylight Savings Time) on Sunday, August 8.

Note to contributors - while I tried to be reasonably generous in pronouncing words in order to get syllable counts into line, poems that could not be coaxed into 5-7-5 format are not included. While 5-7-5 is not the only format acceptable for haikus, it was the format specified for this contest. All submissions were lovely and worthy of re-reading and I thank everyone who contributed to this fun project in any way.
