This Haiku follows my post
from November 9th.
Yesterday was our first day of coming home to an empty house.
It was tough…
it’s amazing how the routines are sorely missed…
in the morning, coming home from work and bedtime.
How she greeted us with her smile,
how she loved having her face scratched
and her belly rubbed…sigh~
We know it will get easier with time,
but for now…
didn’t know the end
was just around the corner
missing her so much

Haikus are so hard to write! So I think you did a great job. 🙂
Adorable dog. 🙂 such a cutie.
Thanks for your complement on the Haiku and also on our Lucky Girl, she was definitely a cutie…by the way, if you have time, check out my Haiku category and let me know your thoughts…:)
I did! And I enjoyed reading them. 🙂
Especially Earth Change.
So you wrote a Haibun. Really a great way to use the haiku. A piece of prose with its essence layed out in a haiku.
Thank you! I’m new at Haiku and wrote this one out of grieving; wasn’t sure how it would turn out. So I’m happy you liked it…Thanks, also, for visiting and I’ll make my way over to your blog, too!
Having just lost a friend I understand and extend my sympathy.
Thank you so much…I appreciate it and I’m sorry for your loss, as well…these are the tough moments in life…
One never knows how much our loved pets will be missed until they are gone. I remember our Maggie well, and I extend my sympathy to you.
Thank you! It’s so tough not having her at home. I’m sorry to hear about Maggie, too…
Losing a loved one is hard. I do hope it gets better.
Thank you, Maiya! This week is the toughest, but we know it’ll get easier~
i am so sad for you. i tear up with each post because i know how special dogs are. lucky was such a beautiful girl. i have honey’s collar from when she was just a puppy and i think i will probably always keep it. hopefully you have something you can always keep, too. thinking of you, L.
Thanks again, Elle, and we do have her collar and tags and will keep them forever! I appreciate your positive thoughts~
it sounds funny, but it does help to have that old collar to just look at and hold. it reminds you so much of your dog. thinking of you ❤
