Tanka: Stag’s Roar

a brindle whippet walking beside a dry stone wall
close up of a brindle whippet peering over a dry stone wall

smooth moss
covers the stones
within sight
a stag roars near the
sunny side of the mountain

  2. SMiLes Dear Xenia
    When i Sneeze
    Dogs Howl
    From Miles
    Away Hehe
    True i Hold
    Nothing of Nature
    Back Sneezing i Am

    So Free

    Cosmically
    Indeed With SMiLes
    Shining Below For Real…

    Yet i Kid You Not Neighbors
    Around the Block Heard me
    With All Windows And Doors Shut

    And Old Men Even Older Than me
    Report it’s the Loudest Sneeze They
    Ever Heard Questioning Did it Even Come From

    A Human Hehe…

    The Neighborhood
    Dogs Are Still Attempting
    to Determine What Creature i Am..:)
