Ben’s weekly poem #Senryu

Thank you so much for coming to visit a dog poet. My poems for Colleen’s weekly poetry challenge are a take on life from a canine perspective. We poet’s write one of the structured poems permitted and have to integrate, as synonyms, the two words given as a prompt. For the first poem of each month we poets choose our words. This week I have chosen the words meaning and passion.

This weeks poem is about how me and my person feel when we get to the top of one of the big mountains on our challenge.


Our joint desire
Heartfelt union of a pulse
Definition – love.
