Photo & Haiku Friday: Cat Wall

Every Friday I like to commemorate a photo in Japan with a hot-out-the-oven haiku. I bribe my wife to add her own as well, so we can get as many interpretations as possible, and sometimes a Japanese one happens to float in off a gentle breeze of inspiration.

Last week we came up with lovely odes to a bear mug. Here’s this week’s photo, taken at Inuyama in Aichi prefecture:

My English haiku:
“Hey dawg what color
Are you gonna be today?”
“I think polka dot.”

Abbey’s English haiku:
Inuyama trip
Dogs everywhere sniffing butts
Even on the walls

My Japanese haiku:
2次元犬
1次元の列
3次元写真

(Two-dimensional dogs)
(In a one-dimensional line)
(A three-dimensional picture)
