two dogs and the cat
together at the fire

    i love a good pun, amanda.

    however, (my pet word), someone reminded me of something; lately, even i had failed to observe, from time to time.

    indefinite articles and definite article, usually i am not particular about such issues, though now, it has been positioned uppermost in my cranium, almost akin to someone telling you not to think of something, and you find yourself doing the opposite, and that is all you can think of.

    so cold
    two dogs and a cat, together...
    at a fire

    i like the "at" on the third line, to me it gives tremendous emphasis on (how cold)

    after i finish here, i will go in search of more pieces arising from you.

    thanks for sharing

    here i lurk
    to think ...
    you read my work

    stray from the beaten path
    even now ...
    you bare a laugh

    from what we learn
    is it of concern ...
    now it's your turn

    tokyo winter apartment
    warming up my feet
    in a cold blanket

    nose dripping -
    brisk winds
    chill the campfire


    wondering how amanda is doing these days ...

    At the fire side
    two dogs seepling a dogsleep
    and a cat purring

    rainy autumn night -
    full bloom bougainvilleas
    some red, some purple
