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

1 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.
