It’s Another Poetry Challenge!

Oh Dog! It’s time for our latest Poetry Challenge! I’m so excited!



I’ve been working really hard on my haiku, so I hope you like them!


Spring has sprung, bringing
The miracle of new life.
And lots of sneezes!


And because I just HAD to write about my favorite thing-


I want a cookie.
Why won’t you just give me one?
Let’s live in the now!


One more, and because I want to give equal exposure to kitties-


June Buggie’s evil!
Why don’t people believe me?
Cats have all the luck!


OK you guys! It’s YOUR TURN!

  1. Here’s a Spring haiku I wrote a couple of years ago:

    Spring is for laughter
    …..and I long to hear you laugh
    Let us not waste time!

  2. A window, open
    to a million spring times
    whispering my name…


    I love Rumpy and,
    June and Dede and Jenny
    They are my dear Friends…


    The sun be with you
    Angels keep you all in safe
    Blessing to you all….

    Thank you,
    Have a nice day and HAPPY MOTHER’ s Day,
    with my love, nia

  3. Yours are always fantastic, Rumpy!!!
    Well…mine are not so good but I’ll try!

    Spring has just come here
    It brings comfy breeze and green plantsย 
    Let’s get out for sniffing

    If you like us, Cat and Dog
    Do not hesitate to take us in
    We make your life fun!

    Have a good friday, dear Rumpy!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. I’m down with the flu
    My nose I just blew
    But I’m reading Rumpy
    My own dogs beside me
    So tho my brain’s a bit addled
    And I can’t really be cuddled
    I get comfort in my animal friends
    And that’s how this awful poem ends.

      1. Thanks, Rumps, my first attempt, haha. Told you my mind is making me do things I’ve never done before. ๐Ÿ˜‰

        Not better but not worse either. That’s a good thing, I guess. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Yay!!! Loved your haikus Rumpy!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Here’s mine and Charlie’s!

    Sun behind the clouds
    Please come out to play with us
    Banish rain and cold!

    Take care

  6. Austin and I laugh
    At your antics Rumpy Dog.
    You’re a cookie fiend!

    Though you’re just a dog ๐Ÿ˜‰
    We can forgive you for this
    You have a big heart ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Well, Rumpy, my Haiku about the park turned into a Dog-ku when Cupcake decided to help. You can probably tell where she chimed in…

    The park has a pond,
    Clover, flowers, birds, and grass….
    And someone spilled cheese popcorn and ants crawled on it and I ate a piece and swallowed it – ants and all – before Mom could fish it out of my mouth. Yum. I love the park!!

  8. Yay, Haiku time! *chews on pencil*

    Autumn is now here
    search for a spot in the sun
    And at night cuddle

    South African weather is upside down to yours, ๐Ÿ™‚ And another one

    Birds chirping, eating
    Seeds rain gently from the tray
    Carus is watching,

  9. Ok, call this pop-poetry, you know, pop style.

    It can be a dead fish a rock or a buoy
    As long as it’s at Doggy’s reach
    Immediately becomes a toy.

    Well, I forgot my homework and this was last minute.

  10. I sleep on the stair
    With sun puddles so many
    Mom walks around me

    So I had Mom look up Haiku on eHow…and I gave it my best paw…my subject taken from my blog post for today. I have another new fave nap place…gettin’ braver and more confident…paw pump

  11. Rumpy we love your Haikus! You are so talented! Here is ours:

    Standard Poodles love
    humans to give us many many
    treats, kibble and toys.

    Bella and DiDi

  12. Hi Rumpy! Your haiku are super swell…’s my “ode to Mom”:

    Mother’s Day is here
    She deserves to have a hug
    And a head bump too!

    (tee hee………..)
    Kitty Hugs, Sammy

  13. As promised, Rumpy, here is my first haiku I have attempted in many decades:

    Let us frolic now
    for spring will soon melt away
    leaving us pant-less.

    (Hey, that was a lot more fun than I thought!)

    Gotta luv ya, Rumpy!

  14. black buttons shiny
    red raincoat early morning
    dew glints on green leaf

    early spring rains come
    apple blossoms everywhere
    soft white snow drifts down

    Yours are all excellent, Rumpy! You and your cookies are so funny, but you’re right about where to live! And, of course, we MUST speak up for June Buggie. Maybe he’s not nice to you, but, just between us cats, he’s our pal and we love him!

  15. @JustAnotherTrend
    DUSTY: Here’s our Haiku, Rumpy. We love your blog!
    HURLEY: I bet you can tell what line “I” wrote.

    Mother’s Day Weekend
    Hope she gets special goodies
    And drops crumbs for me

  16. Rumpy, youยดre really a talented dog. Weยดre a bunch of wild and crazy sled dogs, so all we could come up with is:

    The spring is here
    the snow is gone
    itยดs time for other
    kind of fun

    not as good and poetic as yours. But what would you expect from gang like us ๐Ÿ™‚

    Have a happy day!

  17. Those were great, Rumpy!!! You are a very good poet (and we hope you know it)! We have sneezing going on here so we really appreciate that one! And the fab Five loved your cookie haiku! They are all for cookies and living in the now!
