Doggone Haiku

Sicker than a dog

From where did that saying come?

Don’t know, but I am.

Sorry there have been no posts for the last few days. The above haiku says it all.

Here’s another rough draft of a poem.

My Life

I seized a thought to ponder

It was a random thought

Poetry lies waiting

Beneath every thing, always

So does it really matter?

What has import to most?

Does one existence have more meaning

Because it’s richer, smarter—young?

Does the ant bemoan the swallow’s wings

Or the camel a tiger’s stealth?


Foolishly, I long to live the lives of others

I deem more meaningful than mine.

My talents soon I’d trade for drudgery

Of the famous, rich or smart.

When will I learn that my small part is precious, real and true?


When I embrace it fully and live with passion the life I have been given.

About dmdubay

Since retiring from Northwest Airlines and moving to the Pacific Northwest, I have more time to devote to writing. My first novel, "Tales of Two Sisters" was published over a year ago. I have been writing poetry for a long time and am attempting to collate my poetry into a short book, with pictures. A sequel to "Tales of Two Sisters" should be getting closer to completion soon. Gardening and tending the vineyard take a lot of time in the summer. Even though I love the outdoors, these activities do cut down on my writing. So I appreciate that wintertime allows me time to write. Writing, for me, is what brings things into focus and helps me to make sense of the things that life brings. It is a gift to me and I hope that it will be to you also.
