Haiku Poem about my Best Friend

Updated on March 14, 2013
My beautiful Gizmo boy....
My beautiful Gizmo boy....

My Buddy


Deep eyes on each word

Quick tongue nears for a sweet kiss

His paw soft on mine






My Haiku

Perhaps not the typical topic for a haiku, but one I felt inspired to write.

      Sweet in it's simplicity, but bears a message that any animal lover can connect with.

      Susan! Wonderful to see you. I actually thought about sending you my haiku to look over before I published it. I was so nervous and I rewrote it a bunch of times. Glad you like it. My dog IS adorable, and I hope my haiku captures that. If not, I'll revise it! :-) Glad you came by to read my first haiku! You were my inspiration.

      I've never owned a dog, but Hubs like this one is pushing me to delay no more and just get one! That is one sweet face, and your Haiku is beautifully expressed. Is Gizmo a Havanese breed?

      Patriette, I didn't know how much I would love having a dog until I got Gizmo. He is my little buddy. I love him so much and dread the day he leaves me. He's not a Havanese. He's a wonderful mix of shih tzu, Pekingnese, and terrier. He looks a lot like a Maltese. Get a dog! They are such little friends. Thanks for the comments. He does have a sweet face, doesn't he? :-)
