Writer's Workshop...

It's Thursday! I'm participating in Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop again this week. I love it when she has prompts that result in a list or something short and sweet. Today I've chosen the haiku prompt although I'm cheating a bit. She asks us to write about something we see out the window but I'm writing about two things I see as I sit at my computer desk. I hope I don't get a bad grade for slightly deviating from the assignment. I know when I was a teacher, I gave bonus points for creative thinking. (Hear that Mama Kat?)

The Puppy
Big head, silky ears.
Man's best friend is woman's too.
Love in a fur coat.

The Son
Funny boy, our joy.
He's sweetness personified.
Gives his love freely.

Wrestling, playing.
A boy and his dog are friends.
Barking, laughing smiles.

Love your haikus! And I read your pet peeves list. I love Christmas, so you may have to put up with Christmas music during December. Just a fair warning to mute first. : )
