Today we are exploring poets, pets and sweet things of life.
The photo above is my contribution to Sweet Saturdays. Flowers for Mother's Day from my son, Sean, and his family are sweet to me as it is so wonderful to be remembered. Below are my haiku for Haiku Heights. (word prompt was Mask)  Below that is a photo of none other than ArtMuse Dog for Pet Pride.




haiku


by carol l. mckenna




I.


diving deep water
mask needed to protect self
no clarity under sea.




II.


make up, a day mask
hiding face, eyes, enhancing
be real show your self.


III.


he wore mask fencing
protection from thrusting sword
to die for or win.



ArtMuse Dog (for Pet Pride)

  12. Your second poem reminded me of the woman I saw the other day on the ferry putting on her make-up. Since I used to live in LA, I always saw women doing it in the car, but that was the first time I saw it on a crowded ferry.
