Long-Leaf Pines

muddy, dying pond
green confronts cloudless blue sky
my dog sniffs and snoops

Morning Pleasure

cat laying on top
dog sprawled across my cold feet
coffee tastes so good

The Fox, The Wolf, The Coyote

CANIDS

The Fox

with cat-like slit eyes
lurking near the hen house. . . .
meow-less creature

Chihuahua-like ears
catch a sound in the bushes. . . .
hens can rest easy

a small rat scurries
with that vixen in pursuit . . . 
it’s fast-food tonight

Coyotes

song of the desert -
long howls declare “I am here”. . . . 
mice and rabbits hide

barking dogs in threes 
unlucky mice collected. . . .
live practice for cubs

yippy yippy yip
heard among those happy cubs. . . 
celebration time

The  Pack

the pack starts its hunt
mountains rise up before them. . . 
thirty miles to go

in dark night - dog fight
one alone - tail stands erect. . . . 
yellow eyes back off

wolf faces grinning
twenty pounds of meat for each. . . . 
like one hundred burgers


For PD's Inner Animal Contest:

Haiku - X 17 - A home -


                                   
   

                              
                                
                                             Drenched by the rain
                               Golden key fits perfectly in the door lock
                                       Home with lots of wet dog kisses

Twisted Goose Goes Cuckoo for Haiku

For P.D's "Going Haiku Crazy" Contest

 
How Many?

going to St. Ives
met folks on that smelly bus
more than I could count

Just Sleep Walking?

Wee Willy Winky
caught outside a boy’s window
in a night garment

Got Wool?

naked in the lane
three bags-full of wool sheared off
baa baa black sheep fleeced

She Didn’t Know What to Do!

Kids’ cries from inside -
outside an old woman’s shoe
child welfare people

Clean Your Plate!

Licking their plates clean
Jack Sprat and wife do their part. . .
kids starve in China

The Treacherous Hill

pail of spilled water
Jill’s body sprawled over Jack’s
one big bloody mess

What a Ding Dong

good deed for the day
boy scout Tommy Stout by well. . . 
scratches on his arm

Not Even a Bone

old Mother Hubbard
Social Security cut
dog needs a new home

Yellow Georgie

victims of Porgie 
confront him in the playground
his true color shows

The Original Blonde

Bo peep loses sheep
birth of a new tradition. . . 
blonde jokes being told

The Schemer

some spilled curds and whey
spider near a fallen chair
supping happily

Making the Best. . . 

Humpty takes a spill
the whole army can’t fix him
omelets for lunch

Baby Catches On

the church and steeple
and now you show me people?
those are just fingers!

They Say He Couldn’t Keep Her!

gossip in the town
pumpkin shell big as a house. .  
where is Peter’s wife?

Bye, Hushed Baby

the sound of wind’s rush
baby’s cries abruptly hushed
broken branch on ground

*I'm choosing this series of haiku for several reasons.
First, it's the only post I made named "Twisted" so it
is an obvious choice. Second, I do have other poems
I consider a bit twisted, but, I simply cannot
remember the titles of some of these really old poems
to look for them.  Finally, this series was inspired by 
a long ago contest of PD's in which I got the idea
to take nursery rhymes and twist them,  and so 
I'm reviving this series which can no longer be
viewed by anybody here unless it's in a contest!

SIMPLY all the SAME


                                       Flea's to a dog is
                                                        no different to a cat. 
                                       Both feed to survive.

haiku 39

in the tidal pool
small crabs walk on shining stones –
a dog barks

desert sun

desert sun…
sears thirsty still life 
of flesh and sagebrush 

grey clouds burst 
breaching dry nostrils…
soiled, wet, smelly dog

FIVE WINTER HAIKU

a care
FIVE WINTER HAIKU

frozen is the moon
every star an icy tear
odd sort of beauty

frost nipped the pumpkin
charmed us all but never left
strange jack-o-lantern

hear their forlorn howl
misting muzzles raised on high
cruel winter’s heralds

sitting by the hearth
old dog asleep and dreaming
hot woodfire crackling

mantel clock    tick tock
two mice in breadbox eating
i without a care

A Dog's Life

Put on a leash
Sniff sniff sniff sniff
New place to pee
