Haiku Poem

Something is amiss-

the golden retriever’s stance

signals a rival.

Reactions Change


Crouching near the master,
Brit stands fearful, clinging close;
resting on its haunches,
without feelings of morose.


Brit sprints briskly rightward,
seeking safety from device;
steering clear, from a ping,
Brit shuns sounds that don’t entice


pets beside a loud machine.
Shaking, Brit comes near for love,
wanting strokes and scratches,
never fearful of a shove.


When the noisy gadget stops,
Brit reclines and relaxes;
closing eyes in slumber,
Brit ignores man’s work on taxes.
