Windows & Doorways


This is my favorite picture of The WonderDog. My mother took it and he's actually staring out the door I just left through and crying.

I guess at this point, I'd had him about a year, maybe a little more and we were in hopeless "puppy-mommy" love. I've always been a dog person and can't imagine any home of mine without a dog (it was so hard those years before WonderDog!).

All of this to set up a poem that has nothing to do with WonderDog or dogs in general. *Grin*

Eyes out the window
running through dreams far more grand
than the day inside.

The last couple of days have been pretty, and I've been stuck inside. I have windows...that look out over a beautiful...hallway crowded with students.

    Wonderdog looks lovely! What a sweet and somehow sad photo.

    I like the haiku! Could apply equally to children sitting inside a schoolroom on a beautiful day. I know I was always one with my eyes out the window.

    I felt your feelings in this haiku so, well done! I'm a dog person too but your photo was really good with the shadow and doggie emotion :)
