Do you haiku?

What a fun way to celebrate your obsession: SFgate columnist Amelia Glynn launched a happy little contest in her Tails of the City column this week.  Pet Haiku Contest

Since nothing inspires quite like our favorite fat heads, we're counting on a steady stream of haiku jewels from the pit bull front. Submit your masterpieces by May 22. Here's mine:
The Tao of Sally

You're my religion.
The world's best secrets revealed
in your pink lipped grin.

A pit bull in need
We took you from the shelter
You rescued my heart

This is for my Macy and Hurricane!

That is such a great photo.

Sally is so beautiful. Her sweetness shows in her eyes.

Cool harness. From Paco?

Poetry? Me?

"There once was a pit bull from...." never mind.... I'll leave the poetry to the creative minds out there.

Thanks for the blogs. It's always a highlight of my day to check it out for the news, the great photos and sometimes the teary-eyed stories.

Happy Mom's Day, Donna. May your fur-kids treat you well!

To my big guy Nelson (aka Nellie):

Who woulda thunk it?
Brindle, clown-faced joy bundle -
you've shown me the way.

Sally's mom said...

Wow -- what a picture!

I love haiku and wrote the following four years ago, shortly before my Honey dog died:


It's the golden time
Girls eating cheese in a bone
Nothing else matters

(The title is not a yoga pose, but a double entendre signifying both the ritual my dogs enjoyed at the end of each day and how the lives of my aging girls were winding down ...)

Pink Brown White
Loving warm eyes
Crawled into my heart

Donna said...

Good stuff!

I hope you guys are submitting your prose to the contest.

Don't forget - 5, 7, 5

What a lovely tribute. Mine-not so much.

Brindled mount divides
fear and folklore from sentry-
The innocent die

The Other Sally's Mom said...

Another one from the archives written for my Honey dog:

She captured our hearts
In her paws on that first day
And never let go.

BTW, I belatedly realized that I should be signing in here as "The Other Sally's Mom"!
