Black dogs

wallpaperup.com


They showed up yet in the dream
admonishing tread mingling with
dark night,
their black background skin
entwined stars roundelay
caressed
subconscious mind
lurking in the corner
in every look
she’s begun to accept
the helplessness of world,
futility to control and measure.
***
black dogs stopped
shadow side of the moon
this time

  12. Sometimes life can be too mysterious much to the point of being unfair. Even good friends can be found on the 'other side' putting unwanted pressure! Great lines humbird!

  14. There comes a time when breathing and sighing and accepting that life will happen, regardless of what we want or do, is the only thing that makes sense.

    I really like the hidden possibilities offered in the haiku.
