a dog's good-bye

paws on his casket
he drops a white rose
onto his friend
  a soldier come home
  his final badge of honor

It's a Dog's Life

Such a stupid dog...
(Not nearly as smart as me)
You just wag your tail
Refusing to face the fact
That life is complicated...

PUZZLE

PUZZLE

talking about art
there is a picture I love
pablo picasso
it is his three musicians
a study in cubism

the three dressed as clowns
clarinet    guitar    and voice
so it would appear
a dog under the table
its paws    like shadows    protrude

varied    colorful
the feeling is happy    warm
a staff of black notes
one with a mask    carnival!
why the dog in attendance?


Readers!   If you know this painting, please enlighten me. Even if you haven’t seen it, take a 
shot.  D.R.A.

Golden In The Shade - Tanka



This is the old grove
where I would unhook his leash
so he could run free-
Squirrels may be glad he is gone
but leaves have gilded his grave

Sitting in the shade
feathering grass with fingers
I feel soft, long ears---
I can almost feel the thump
of his tail hitting my legs
