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

Dogs Can’t Write Poetry

Dogs can’t write poetry
For they have paws
With no way to grasp a pen.

When they speak words come out
As barks and woofs.

Dogs can’t write poetry
For they sleep so much
Throughout the day.

They are too busy with sleep, eating and play;
To stop and think of what to say.

Owners can write their dog’s poetry
For dogs can tell by their actions and habits.

Throu my dog can’t write poetry
She can do it through her action
And many quirky habits she possess.

Morning Repeating Walk

Every morning is the same
Dog and I take our walk
Down carpet stairs
Out to condo landing
Down to wooden stairs below
Then round the sidewalk
To our small street
Walk around our condo complex
Around cul-de-sac to stop and sniff
Then continue down little intersection
to the left and another cul-de-sac
Back the way we came
Up to clubhouse; stop and sniff
Around a short U
Then around to sniff a rock
Back down to intersection
To the left pass the lake
Back to sidewalk and around
Up the stairs; across the landing
Open door back inside
Wipe four paws and a belly
Then backup carpeted stairs
And repeat every single day
Unless a brief time for vacation

5 Dog Haikus Even More

Here are more haikus from what a dog would write.

Oh, I wish you could
understand what I say now
But you look confuse

Why can’t I have your
Food to eat the same as you
You keep saying no

I feel the aging
Has come to slow me down for
Now I can’t do stairs

I am in pain
But hide any traces when
You are now nearby

You cry on my fur
Don’t worry, we’ll met again
In another life
