Ode to a Blue Donut and other Snorkie Poetry


 

 

Three Haikus on Blue Donuts and Soothing Baths

1

Blue donut collar

Hides my itchy bump from me.

When will all this stop?

2

A bath brings freedom.

Warm water soothes itchy bump.

Donut’s cast aside.

3

Blown dry silky smooth fur!

Oh No, the donut returns.

Freedom is short lived.

Ode to the Blue Donut

 

If you weren’t around my neck, I’d use you as a toy.

I’d chew and pound and roll on you and earn a strong “Good Boy!”

If you were free from my poor neck, I’d drag you to my crate,

I’d hide you with my bones and sticks until a later date.

 

But you are wrapped around my neck, linked firmly to my collar.

Your bulbous shape defeats my lick and makes me want to holler!

You’re with me in my waking hours and when I go to pee.

I dream of tearing you to shreds then licking at my knee.


One day I will be free of you, you blue inflated neck brace.

The squirrels no longer will be free to laugh right into my face.

I know you’re something that I need. I am resigned to it.

That doesn’t mean that I don’t wish you thrown into a pit.

 

That hope springs eternal is an often quoted phrase,

I hang my wishes on that line that freedom comes in days.

Snorkie Poetry – Photographic Haiku

Haiku #1 — Sunshine

 

Contemplative mood

In the warm sunshine kissed grass.

And lone Opie basks.

 

Haiku#2 – My ball

 

It’s pink and green fun!

Round entertainment he loves.

It’s mine! No fetching now!
