small stone


dog's claws
like sunflower seeds
scratching the door
Bear, the German Shepherd,
having an epileptic fit

Oh poor Bear. Super stone though. I didn't know you were doing it too.

To be honest, I copy these from my morning poetry on livejournal. I've started the day with three or four poems every day for many years now.

Three or four poems, honestly Rachel you are incredibly talented. I struggle with one a week! The description of Bear's claws is very good, I wonder why dogs are inflicted with epilepsy as it seems quite common in these days.

Rose -- I think it's overbreeding.

Every day I write cinquain, haiku, taka and a sevenling, plus a 'word of the day' senryu; plus a long-form poem and 1-2000 words of prose.
