Haiku

I still miss my dogs
who yet run through my dreams
with unabating joy.

One thought on “Haiku

  1. Technically, the original post fails one of the three criteria for haiku. It is composed of 17 syllables in 3 lines, but those lines are arranged in a 5-,6-,6-syllable order rather than the 5-,7-,5-syllable order.

    A friend sent ” May they always be there.” The haiku reply to her kindness is the technically proper form:

    I would be content
    when dreams slip into dying
    to run beside them.
