Haiku by Dog: Dinnertime

what's that? Could it be? / Scent of hope tantalyzes / Yes! it's dinnertime! #HaikuByDog #HaikusDay #Micropoetry

Today’s haiku by Lilah.

Dogs are time travelers. 

Their noses are so sensitive that they can experience not only what is currently happening—like the making of dinner—but also what has already happened, and what will happen.

Dogs can smell what I ate for breakfast, and who I’ve been with—including the dogs I met at a PetSmart adoption event two hours ago: all of which is in the past.

They can also know the future, catching the scent of a fox heading my way that’s too far away for my human eyes to see, or detecting the new can of food I’m trying out on the cats, and will be sure to share a taste with the dogs.

What a wondrous thing a dog’s sense of smell is. Dogs live in the past, present, and future—through their noses.

What do you think would be different about your life if your sense of smell is like your pet’s?
