Dachshund Dog, a Sunday Haiku: Haiku-San
He darts, short, bouncy,
Long nose on sturdy body.

Enjoy more Haiku about dogs in my new book of poetry and haiku, As Good AS Gold:
“This book is a pure delight to read!” (5* Amazon Review, Donna Maguire)
“I’m more of a cat person myself, but I do love dogs, and each poem captured a special moment in a dog’s life, no matter how silly or seemingly mundane it might seem to us humans.” (4* Amazon Review, Jasmine)
I chose the name Haiku-San as it derives from Haiku, meaning unusual verse in Japanese (hai=unusual, ku=verse, strophe) and San, the honorific
Japanese title when speaking about people. San is also the phonetic transcription of the first syllable of the English word Sunday, Sun-day hence Haiku-San, a Sunday feature on Alluring Creations involving Haiku I write.
