Meowvelous Monday Haiku: Icicle Crunch Sundae hits the right spot for Ollie
Last updated January 14th, 2019
When life hands you icicles, make an icicle crunch sundae.
It’s Ollie here and I’m presenting this week’s Meowvelous Monday Haiku. We’re in a cold snap at the moment but I don’t let that freeze my lifestyle. I spent a good portion of yesterday chasing icicles. It’s quite fun actually and pretty soon I had my pals join in the fun too. My brother Baggy was a little miffed that he didn’t start it first. After all, he is the king of testing gravity.
Since I’m a cat I like to investigate stuff and these strange water drops required testing for gravity and inertia. They seemed stuck in place, not flowing at all. So, of course, I had to bat it, bite it and lick it. They were quite delicious and refreshing on the palate too.
Shall I take a drink?
The cold icy crunch scatters
Can you hear the clink?
My frozen fountain
Once was water but now it’s ice
Winter becomes Spring
In a state of flux
This icicle grew bigger
Nature so fleeting
My brother gone mad
That looks like a game for me!
Watch my short 40s video to catch a glimpse of my icicle crunching. I hope it brings a smile to your face.
Remember, things are changing, nothing is stagnant. Emerge with renewed vigor and forget about last week’s obstacles and missed goals. The icicles are melting, can you hear the clink-clink? Find your icicle crunch sundae moment on this beautiful Monday morning and look ahead!

A magnificent reflection of Ollie to start this week … it has been very good for me, because I finished last week full of icicles from a work colleague … and this morning I am taking a coffee made with them …. .
Thank you very much for making us start a wonderful vacation with the good wishes of Ollie!

Thank you! And the same to you! I just read your funny review for wellness and it’s very deserving to make it as finalist yay!
That looks like some fun but a little cold on the paws. We have never had an icicle. Sure is nice to meet you and looking forward to meeting some more of you. Have a terrific day.
Hello there, nice to meet you too! Yes, we don’t stay out too long in the catio because our pawsies will get too cold. Have a wonderful day!
I think my cats would like investigating icicles. Sadly, none around here! (or not sadly)

nah you don’t want icicles, it was fun for us but The Lady Cat didn’t have her gloves on when taking these pictures and she said her hands were purralylized went she went back inside. Mmmm, I think that sounds like a good thing but she kept making bbbbbbrrrr noises. I guess that’s how humans purr?
