This week’s Haiku Dialogue, the weekly column from the Haiku Foundation, had haiku written based on the portrait of a baby and a dog laying together on the floor. The editor, John S Green, said the following about the haiku written about it:
” Another terrific week – thanks to all 133 poets who submitted 213 poems from 26 countries. There was a good bit of kissing going on in these haiku . . . hmmm, I wonder why? And canine love, naturally. Although felines made their way into a few poems, and why not?”
This pedometer geek poet had a haiku (or perhaps it is technically a senryu, but please don’t ask this writer to explain the difference between the two since I am still trying to figure it out myself) selected for inclusion, thanks to John.
It is as follows:
the baby rolls over

Thanks again, John; it’s appreciated.
