Dog Poems

  At the summit tree,
my exhausted dog lifts his leg
  a dry formality

the tethered dog
watches the guide dog
enter a deli

my dog's nose
to the ground
- Hilary Tann
  Whatever my dog
was chasing within his dream
  he is now sniffing!

one dog starts
them all

  Suddenly thumping
the floor... a happy moment
  in my dog's dream

the three-year-old
making their big dog

  Going in circles
trying to make ends meet
  a frantic puppy

new puppy
all about

  The puppy's wonder
tilts his head, first to one side
   and then the other

     the dog sits
in the bow of the canoe
    nose to the breeze

  Romping new puppy
sits down every so often
  and whimpers awhile

traffic jam
a plastic dog
keeps on nodding

barks at me everyday
but just lately
he sounds lonely

in human years-
my collie's bright eyes

in the harvester

news of a missing dog
from pole to pole

just arrived
their dog sniffs
our tires

invisible fence
no sign of the dog
-Hilary Tann


  Before he lies down
on the floor, the dog paws away
  centuries of leaves
- J.W. Hackett


  Puppy gives each yawn
vocal accompaniment
  to make sure its seen
- J.W. Hackett
snowed in
the dog clicks
from room to room
- Roberta Beary
distant thunder-
the dog's toenails click
against the linoleum
- Gary Hotham
the dog out-
the stars out
- Gary Hotham
day one
with the new puppy...
dog tired
  - Tom Clausen
