deep autumn
my dog's legs shorter
than the leaves

    i do like this one - warm and comical but avoids being 'cute' - thanks for putting a smile on my face Ann

    Very amusing, especially because it doesn't try too hard.

    Very well crafted, and a great doggie haiku. There just aren't enough dog haiku to compete with cat haiku, but your's is one of them!

    Very original, just the right amount to give layers (no pun intended, I think) to this poem.

    Ann:

    Thank you for a warm and funny haiku, it invoked for me my love of dogs, autumn and humor all at once. I look forward to reading more of your submissions.

    nights getting longer
