Walkie (a Haiku)

Walkie (a Haiku)

To explore his patch

He happily trots away

He then prances back

Ivor Steven (c) February 2023

Published by


G'day, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I'm an ex-industrial chemist, and a retired plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I've been blogging for over 2 years, and writing poems for 19 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I've been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems.

  2. thanks Ivor; tbh I had a bit of trouble to find your haiku among all the ad stuff…(when I looked at the page the way it was shared) – now I have got it – I like the scene you set but I miss the haiku – you have written a list of observations of your dog, lovely but not yet a haiku…? Thanks for contributing and have a good day.

      1. thanks Ivor; I am no expert, I am sure you know more about literary forms than I do; all I am is a sucker for ‘ aha’ , i.e.catch the moment in the moment.. the juxtaposition…
        I don’t know your experience either – for me it sound more like a haiku like this

        prances back
        trots away –
        my dog exploring his patch
