After Dinner #Haiku

As we left the restaurant from our dinner out last night a spring storm began to move in. While I waited in the truk for my wife, I noticed the roses in front of me begin to wave with the breeze; I’m not sure I captured it in the photo but hopefully I did in the haiku. 

dark skies descend
roses dancing in the wind
spring rains approaching

Hot Dog, Cooling Off #haiku

Petey is almost the perfect dog – almost. Good with people, kids, other animals. Minds well (most of the time), doesn’t chew on or tear stuff up. He is lovable, loyal, and fun. But he can’t resist the temptation to escape from our fenced yard; no matter many how places we fix, he finds or makes new escape routes. 

He is also very averse to the heat. But has no inhibitions on cooling himself in the most convenient – if not dirty – place he can find. He demonstrated that, which brings him down to almost perfect, this afternoon after a run around the yard – outside the fence of course – and then taking a nice “dip” to cool himself before coming back inside. 

Yeah, he earned himself a bath post-dip.
