I would have to say it was fun being able to publish another book of poetry. I have some other poetry book ideas in the works.
Windows down fresh breezes come through
Hear wind rustle as we drive on highway
I glance to backseat for a moment
Her snout raises in air
Look of awe with eyes close
She soaks up sents in air
She pauses, looks at me with doggy smile
As if to say thank you for putting windows down
Now would you mind driving longer
For I am enjoying the breezes right now
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
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.

Infernal heat I want to bark at you
Alas, all I can do now is pant
As my furry coat sweats on humid day
Paws on concrete are hot
Even when I lay down to rest
You make my walks short in afernoon sun
I give you a stern eye
But, no heat comes rising up
Lo, thank goodness for morning and evening walks
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.
Rains throw spray
Will walk whole way
Dog wears raincoat
Geese in lake float
We pass them
I am glum
Cause weather is scum
It’s too cold
This weather is getting old
I am not sold
We go back
Where its warm
