My Dog Reads Poetry

My dog reads poetry with glasses on
Perched a top her snout like a librarian
Book open with paw to hold page down
She bends over the words on page
I look at her through camera lens
Wondering if squiggly lines she see
Maybe some words might stand out for her
She pauses in that brief moment
Like she is interpreting what is being said
Pondering what the poem may be about
My camera locks in the moment
As my dog is reading poetry on balcony
During another photo shoot

Land of Sleepers

In land of sleepers they do not wake
Dreams trap them in like a spider’s web
Eye lids close;
A placid face in peaceful rest
Sleepers sleep in internal bliss
Day and night they sleep on
Slumber through season come and gone
Not one can wake a sleeper
No rough touch can cure
No one has found away
To wake any in the land of sleepers

I Could Be Anything [Revison]

I could be anything you want me to be.
I could be the sun shining its warmth upon you
Or I could be the cold wind against your face.
I could be a drop of rain that gently falls down
Upon you as you dance across land in night.
I could be the snowflake that falls
In the bleak of a winter’s night,
That hopes to find a place upon your head.
I could be a rescue dog looking longingly outside my cage
Hoping you would take me home.
I could be anything in the world,
But I am yours forever,
You let me be want I want to be,
And what I will be is me.

105 Dog Haikus Book

Next book, 105 Dog Haikus is in the process of being done. It is in editing mode and I am finishing on the book cover. It should be coming hopefully next month. This book has 105 haikus about what a dog for poem about if they could. They range from outside through the seasons, brushing of the fur, eating, habits and a lot more. These have been taken from the many dog haikus that I have written. For a sample of what will be in the book here are three links of dog haikus.
