Alex Terrgi here. My human is working hard these days, even harder than usual – and that is saying something. I’ve written before about the difficulty she has doing nothing. But this time her work is kinda interesting to me, at least part of it is. She writes these poems called haiku, and now she is going to make books of them – seven books in all. You can see what she says about this project here.
But what makes this project interesting to me is that one of the seven books is called A Haiku Book of Days, for Students of Animals, Insects, Birds, and Other Teachers. This book has haiku poems about all kinds of creatures, but in my opinion the best poems are – you guessed it – about dogs! This is because we are the most wise, colorful, funny, and interesting beings on the planet.
Don’t believe me? Well, here are just three of the many Dog Haiku in this book:
wisdom from a dog:
love equals happy. Also
happy equals love
fighting doesn’t work
growl and sniff each other’s butts
dogs will work it out
learn Life from a dog
curl up at the feet of Love
all your needs are met
Wise, right? In just a few more months you will be able to buy this amazing dog wisdom-filled book. Then you can read it to your own dog.
