squats and drinks

Hello Ralf... another moment in an ordinary day others would not notice. You have reminded me to notice all of the details in this day.


Devika hat gesagt…

These are occasions when I would stop to pet the dog, get some food and water for it, if possible...I do not like pet dogs or cats,

you have a compassionate eye, Ralf -- a mind follows that, I guess


Frank Williams hat gesagt…

One of the great things about haiku is the noticing of the ordinary - nice one Ralf...

Cindybrown hat gesagt…

Good one Ralf!

Magyar hat gesagt…

_Too agree with Frank, the ordinary is so ordinary that when we notice the ordinery, it comes to us 'out of' the ordinary!
_Fine one Ralf! /SP/

_Ralf... I wonder if, which could fully prove your good haiku sight here, any one noticed: the ordinAry, and the ordinEry?
_Sort of... out of the ordinary?
_Best wishes, Ralf. _m

:-), _m. Hmm, might pee ... (ah, sorry) ... be that good manners helped the one or the other not to say what was in the verse (and my head) without being named.

I did'nt think of this: http://www.break.com/index/dog-squat.html It was more like that: http://dogs.thefuntimesguide.com/2006/12/male_dogs_lift_leg_to_pee.php#more

I like this, the sense that simple pleasures are enough for the dog.

RBroeker hat gesagt…

And they are so happy, when their masters come home. (And this is a simple pleasure to the master ;-).

Best wishes
