dog's got the door mat-
tussles, drags, fights it
through the fallen leaves

    an intriguing sight, however, am i wrong, in inquiring about the length of the moment


    a suggestion:


    fallen leaves
    tussle of the door mat...
    with the dog

    waves in sunlight~
    a cat and a dog play
    beach-ball in breeze~

    owners meet~
    two chained dogs greet
    in canine tongues~

    twilight spring~
    a flock of sparrows
    play with puppies~

    evening siren~
    a dog sniffs grass
    lifts a leg, pees~

    roadside mastiff
    quiet as in meditation
    my thumping heart
