two white puffs playing
my warm Shi Tzus in the snow
while my feet get cold

—Tom Murray

This haiku was written just a few days ago, during the last snow fall of the season---I hope---but the dogs don't.

    one brown puff
    basket of stuffed animals ...
    small terrier sleeps

    fake antiques
    the fresh signature of time
    on the porcelain

    two opaque puffs --
    my warm thoughts
    stare into the fireplace
