A very nice observation, Bill. Good jux of images...
I like this one, Bill. Not only because I love dogs, but also because - even being not a hunter (and, to be honest, totally opposed to hunt)- I nevertheless somehow "understand" this old guy who, no longer able to hunt, "sighs into sleep". An excellent example of "show, not tell".
Terrific haiku, Bill - for one who used to occasionally hunt raccoons by the light of the moon with my friends and their dogs in Louisiana, I can feel this poem and love where it leads me.Warren
Thanks, Frank.Monika, your sensitive reading is much appreciated.Glad to know this appeals to someone who has hunted with dogs, Warren.
