#Tanka, dog poet tells the time


how lovely of you to visit me, thank you. This is the latest offering of the dog-poet in response to Colleen’s weekly poetry challenge The two prompt words this week, to be integrated synonymously, are love and time.

You can read all about my v. v. v big adventure by visiting my home page  and also, my Munro blogs. All my poems are here dog-poets page


Sirius the dog star – the brightest star in the sky

Dogs don’t own watches.
My guide is the sun’s compass
And the earth’s orbit –
Long days on the mountains
Kissed by Sirius in sleep.

By Ben, the dog poet © 2018


There are so many great poets contributing to this weekly challenge

This link will take you to last week’s Tanka Tuesday Poetry Recap featuring the work of poets from around the globe.

Love Ben xx0
