    Enjoyed your poem!

    the taste of air
    in moonlight

    Ben, I love your juxtaposition! Made me say aha!

    Ben Gaa, Opened a new window. Thank you.

    And Martin1234, is that piece yours or Ben Gaa?s? It?s lovely.

    Nice one, Ben… this strikes home to me because of the social requirement nowadays, such as schooling-kids-from-home. The wild of coyote speaks to my resistance to other burdens, even while those other burdens justifiably tug. Your haiku makes it all resonate.

    Ah, a trickster, like Loki? We all have the calling of the original dog somewhere inside us, and a full moon helps.


    a dog all smiles
    can't wait to say hello
    we talk secretly
