my dog catches
a new scent
Issue 19.2 | 21 October 2019
Love it, Jacquie! It captures an essential quality of dog.
The wordplay matches the playfulness of the dog. What a clever, vivid, fun haiku!
This feels very immediate, and embraces both the humor of the moment, and how a dog senses far more than we do. Smells and scents are like synesthesia if humans could see what dogs could smell! :-)
I'm more of a dog person but have written more cat haiku, but trying to catch up myself!
goodbye to autumn
a day spent watching dogs
walk their owners

Ah yes, the unpredictability of a dog. This ku amuses and points a finger at the same time.
Lovely images Jacquie Pearce

Brilliant image – visual, visceral, synesthetic.
It is a sublime haiku. Let's see more!
Very visual, Jackie and so like a dog. It makes me laugh and also reminds me of how much more there is to the world than what we, as humans, scent and smell.
Thanks for the kind comments, everyone! (My apologies for the much delayed reply!)
