Puppy Power


Puppy tucked under

Warm body resting lightly

Dreaming of running


Whimper and sighing

Rolls and stretches as he yawns

Gimlet eyes awake


Sniffing, feet patter

Darting, zig-zagging, tracking

Munching bone dragging


Legs akimbo run

Head turned tongue hanging out

Tree stopped puppy cold


Stunned, head cocked sideways

You cannot stifle a laugh

Wide grinning dog face

Thanks for reading my first attempt at a Haiku...

      Oh Jasper is adorable and your haiku bring this little character in the cute photos alive - I just can't go past the first haiku, little fellow asleep, "dreaming of running", oh yes, of course he is!!! Just too cute! - Gotta watch those trees though!!! Beautiful, my votes and best wishes to you, Johanna, and sharing.

      Your haikus remind me my Tibetan Apso.

      Feels so good to read your lines.

      Good work

      I love it--your joy at witnessing the natural happiness of puppies is contagious. Now: if we could all be more like our dogs in temperament, the world would be a nobler place! Haiku is a delightful form for examining the natural world and its critters. . .
