Haiku Friday – Guardians

Ever vigilant
Ridding the world of vermin
One squirrel at a time

Haiku Friday is hosted by Lou at LouCeeL.

*Our Girls, Labrador-Chow mixes Maxx (age 14) and Hershey (5), guard our backyard against those bushy-tailed rats. They’ve never caught a single squirrel; probably wouldn’t know what to do with it if they did. Maxx, showing the signs of arthritis, is no longer the first out the door chasing the fleas bags up trees or over our fence, but she can still bark out no trespassing warnings. Hershey flounces across the yard, only to lose sight of them in the branches of the oaks. She’ll then sit beneath the trees, confused, as they chatter insults at her.

I believe all good fiction includes an element of truth, and all good photography includes an element of fantasy. In this journal I hope to give voice to the stories swirling around in my head, and to capture the images I see through my camera’s lens.
