A Few Haikus
#1
Handful of haiku;

Written a long time ago;

Found on my hard drive.


I wrote these for a contest on a long-gone forum, around 1999-ish.  They are all in the traditional 5-7-5 form.



Some Zooish Haiku  by Dingo Jay
 
 
 
Best friend and lover
 
Soft fur against my bare skin
 
She lives to please me.
                ____
 
He sits before me
 
Pink delight peeks from his sheath
 
Awaiting my touch.
                ____
 
Cold nose,  amber eyes
 
Half-wild to her last breath
 
My dangerous mate!
                ____
 
His past a nightmare
 
Flinching under a caress
 
He learns to trust me.
                ____
 
Busy herding dog
 
Coat matted with dust and muck
 
Hides the love within.
                ____
 
Junkyard Doberman
 
Enjoys the release we share
 
Then wants to cuddle.
                ____
 
Her gaze locked with mine
 
Her musk intoxicating
 
I can't resist her.
                ____
 
Warm tongue and whiskers
 
Signalling his desire
 
How does he sense mine?
                ____
 
His paw on my knee
 
He has that look in his eyes
 
I am late for work.

I think we were on the same forum, as that's when I wrote the few zoo ones I posted here. I only seem to write Haikus for contests. Yours are much better than mine. I especially like the last one. It conveys everything a Haiku is supposed to be, and does so while creating an image all can relate to here. Good work.
