A Common Exchange This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

My cat rested, quiet,
Soaking up silken sun rays
She purrs, rumbles, smiles

A creak from the floor –
Feline turns, ears now erect
It is just the dog

My cat turns again
Facing the solar nectar
Hoping he will leave

I like how this is so simple, it relates to nature (which was the original purpose of haiku) and it's so natural. Great job. Really great.
