The Gorgon

Close your eyes against her stare
For if you do beware
Her eyes will penetrate you to stone
She may try to lure you with her voice
For her beauty she has none now
For hair is intwine with snakes
Her cheeks are pale from hiding
She is monster you shouldn’t behold
For with one look she will turn you to stone

Dog First Time At Outside Mall

New places I go

I walk towards mall.

It’s not an indoor mall

With walls and tight spaces.

This mall is open

Where one smells fresh air

As you wander down each store.

My owner and I walk inside.

Some are pet friendly

For I receive treats

Or petting from sale associates.

I see other dogs walking around.

I take it all in with my senses.

I enjoy until I’m tired

We go home; I fall asleep in car.

At Dog Park Haiku Sonnet

I look through tall fence
I want to join the big dogs,
Can you please let me?

I run with big dogs
Tongue out, smiling having fun
I make many friends

I run all over
I chase, bark my opinion
I say don’t be rude

I head to dry pond
I walk through a muddy patch
I have mud boots on

We go; wash paws with water
Now I am clean once again
