Israel on Carter Dome, March 8, 2012

Israel's Haiku from on High

i

Master I said may I
have my bone on the summit
every summit?

ii

Four legs no crampons
four dog jackets for color
brown dog white with snow

iii

People hikers talk
dog hikers mainly listen
sounds like woof to me

iv

Jefferson slip-slip
Adams big rocks I bound on
Madison I lead

v

I make tracks in all
directions because I can
because I want to

vi

A grouse sprang from deep
snow and I tried not to be
frightened but I was

vii

Meeting another
dog on high is paradise
better than the view
