Haiku by Dog: Snowflakes

Haiku by Dog: intricate snowflakes / gather in frozen clusters make / cold nose colderToday’s haiku is by Lilah.

One could look at the photo above and think it’s a picture of a poor sad dog left out in a snowstorm.

It is a dog in a snowstorm; that part is true. But sad? Just the opposite.

Lilah dances into a storm, her black fur a perfect medium to collect snowflakes.

She plows through the snow on the ground, scooping up mouthfuls of frozen cold, her banner tail waving in glorious joy.

She digs in the snow, pushing her snout in and coming up with a faceful of flakes.

She runs through the snow, except when it’s deep; then she Tiggers her way around in a series of leaps and bounces.

So don’t feel sorry for the dog in the picture, with the cold, snowy nose. She’s just taking a break before she’s off on a winter’s chase with her brothers. Summer’s heat is only a few months away, when a black dog will rest in the shade, dreaming of cold snowy drifts.
