LUCKY FOR US

This Haiku follows my post
from November 9th.

Yesterday was our first day of coming home to an empty house.
It was tough…
it’s amazing how the routines are sorely missed…
in the morning, coming home from work and bedtime.
How she greeted us with her smile,
how she loved having her face scratched
and her belly rubbed…sigh~
We know it will get easier with time,
but for now…

didn’t know the end

was just around the corner

missing her so much

  1. So you wrote a Haibun. Really a great way to use the haiku. A piece of prose with its essence layed out in a haiku.
    Well done.

    • Thank you! I’m new at Haiku and wrote this one out of grieving; wasn’t sure how it would turn out. So I’m happy you liked it…Thanks, also, for visiting and I’ll make my way over to your blog, too!

  2. i am so sad for you. i tear up with each post because i know how special dogs are. lucky was such a beautiful girl. i have honey’s collar from when she was just a puppy and i think i will probably always keep it. hopefully you have something you can always keep, too. thinking of you, L.
