National Haiku Poetry Day

Yeah? And then what? #dog #gsd #germanshepherd

Today is National Haiku Poetry Day. I felt inspired by certain events of yesterday to write a few (incredibly bad) Haiku poems of my own.

*********************************
Streak across the yard
Green trees, a flash of black, white
Smells like that don't die
*********************************
Jasper wants to play
Hi! Lovely forest creature
That really smells bad
*********************************
Jasper is a dog
He likes to chase animals
Well, not anymore
*********************************
What is that odor?
Oh, dear Lord, it's my dumb dog
Some things never fade
*********************************
What is that odor?
The skunk is in my nose
IN MY NOSE, PEOPLE
*********************************
A day at the vet
Cleaning, cleaning, two skunk baths
The scent still lingers
*********************************

Go write your own Haiku poem - they're quite cathartic. Feel free to post some in the comments - I'd love to read yours! Just please, please, please...make them better than mine.
