Haiku by Cat: Circle

Haiku by Cat: circle is complete / with no beginning or end / cat abides within



Cats are always  “in.” In a box. In a bag. In a tunnel.

Today’s Haiku by Cat features Calvin, who is curled up in one of his favorite spots.


What is your cat’s (or dog’s) favorite spot to be “in?”

    Calvin is a great philosophical mind:
    “Another early idea — one that was to be espoused by many illustrious writers and artists of various periods — found perfection in the circle and the sphere. Aristotle wrote in the Physica that the circle was ‘the perfect, first, most beautiful form.’ Cicero wrote in De natura deorum (On the Nature of the Gods): ‘Two forms are the most distinctive: of solids, the sphere… and of plane figures, the circle… There is nothing more commensurate than these forms.’
    In a commentary to Aristotle’s De coelo et mundo (On the Heavens and Earth), the medieval Pole, Jan of Słupcza, wrote: ‘The most perfect body ought to have the most perfect form, and such [a body] is heaven, while the most perfect form is the round form, for nothing can be added to it.’ In the famous illustrated Les très riches heures du duc de Berry, paradise is depicted as contained within an ideal sphere.
    The Renaissance architect Sebastiano Serlio (1475–1554) stated: ‘the round form is the most perfect of all.’
    The most excellent of 16th-century architects, Andrea Palladio, held that ‘the most perfect and most excellent’ form was ‘the round form, since of all forms it is the simplest, the most uniform, the strongest, the most capacious’ and ‘is the most suitable for rendering the unity, infinity, uniformity and righteousness of God.’ This was the same thought as in Jan of Słupcza and in Serlio, and it was one of uncommon durability.”

  6. What a beautiful place to rest!

  7. That’s a great spot to hang out. We love hanging out in our tunnel.
