Smorgasbord Poetry – Colleen Chesebro’s Weekly Tanka Poetry Challenge. – #Haibun – Life Lessons by Sally Cronin

This week Colleen’s Tuesday Poetry Challenge 132  has the prompt words ‘Influence and Perception’ and I have chosen ‘ Mould and Sense’ for my Haibun and I have had a little fun with this one….

Life’s Lessons #Haibun by Sally Cronin

As I think about my life, I remember fondly those who have taught me important lessons. Their endeavours to mould me into a civilised individual. To domesticate and remove feral inclinations. To instil in me a sense of moral decency. How to enjoy life to its fullest. Imagine my surprise to determine, that the greatest teacher of all was a dog.

Their eyes have evolved
to look deep within our souls;
better to know man.
Little do we comprehend
how much they have to teach us.

  1. This was a stupendous haibun/tanka, Sally. We just had a story on our national news about how dog’s eyebrows and eyes have changed through the years to tug at our hearts. Always a pleasure to see the lovely Sam. Sugar and Spice highly approve. ❤
