Cool Dip

Down the dusty road

into the creek at the end,

Cosmo's wet again!


Cairn Greeting Party

who's happy mom's home

tails wag, paws fly,two big smiles

Brodie and Aidan


Gross Snack

You have to potty?

Good girl! Good potty Abby!

No! Drop it! Too late.


Guard Dogs

Shhh, noise, Bark Bark Bark

stranger enters,who are you

roll over, pet me


Snack Time

Glasses are crunchie

They look better than they taste

Should have eaten poop!


The Hunt

Lurking in the yard

Stalking chipmunks, there goes one

Got it! I'm the queen


Best Friend

I am your best friend

Now, always, and especially

when you are eating


Summer Night

Cosmo comes running

Into summer's humid night

Gentle breeze awaits


Welcome Home

Evening door opens,

Ronan pads up, tail wagging:

Joy, plain and simple!


Forbidden Territory, Guilty Pleasure

Safety gate unlatched!

Trash can full; now's my chance. Toss!

Throw! Bounce! Oops, I'm caught!


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.
