For twenty years Snoopy was my constant companion, whether out walking or sitting on the couch. When my relationship broke down we had to move out. My new accommodation did not allow pets so I took my dog to stay with a good friend but lived many hours drive away. Snoopy seemed happy. She sent photos of her lying on her new bed in front of the fire and looking happy. I wasn’t able to get back to see her for four weeks and the two of us went for a slow walk before I again left. The next morning my friend called to say Snoopy had died in the night. Perhaps she could not bear me leaving her again.

K haiku

When I cross that bridge

a piece of my heart remains

but not memories

Reaching for the stars.

Bewitched by false charms

while still inexperienced,

seeking affection.

Preying on naivety

soon their lust brought her ruin.

Blow gentle sea breeze,

free my heart from this torment

call my spirit home

Bardic harmony

A shimmer of notes

cascades like a waterfall

onto chiming stones

a harp player’s ecstasy

harmony of the ancients

E haiku

Long ears in the grass

snarling dogs strain at the leash

darkness on the downs

The fire in your eyes

and the ire in your answer

showed love’s bonds broken

Instantly I saw

my cat was obsessed with you

a menage a trois

Seductive power

and finely moulded beauty

in smooth alabaster

form flowing impressions through

the deft touch of the craftsman

The journey
Though the path of life
may be strewn with obstacles
only joy awaits
achievements are as nothing
memories will be your fate
