teddy toddler turtle and elevator dog haiku

`

10/11/15

walking on the bridge
teddy bear toddler on leash
daddy other end

then you see they’re twins
mother walking teddy too
then small dog walks by

on his mother’s leash
tiny toddler’s tiny dog
daddy turns around

end of the boardwalk
“feel like i’m walking a dog”
that’s what it looks like

you’re walking two dogs
and two dogs passing also
next a dalmation

taller than children
holding a giant turtle
men under the bridge

searching for something
forever home for turtle
finding in the surf

he didn’t belong
home of turtles and ducklings
pointing to the pond

a very long walk
for both man and the turtle
they tell you thank-you

you tell them thank-you
turtle bobbing in the surf
now he’s back to life

he’s on holiday
people usually bring bread
he will be happy

mother and jaden
jogging by me with haiku
two hours later

“hello again it
turned out to be a nice day
i am so happy”

from two poems ago
both wave while jogging by surf
changing directions

elevator dog
father explains etiquette
tells him look to left

he doesn’t listen
looking to the right at me
wagging his cute tail

rub his ears three floors
neither of us listen to
smiling dog parents

  1. Ha, ha! I have five, but managed to keep an eye on without leashing. The dog I might leash if there were an elevator to be found on the island. No, I would let him go wild on it, and the children too. 🙂
