Response to Ronovan Writes Haiku Poetry Challenge #30 Prompts Force/Free


Miss Precious

Friendship started here.
Wrinkled forehead & bright eyes

The beginning of a beautiful friendship.

The beginning of a beautiful friendship.

Dog gone it.

Some folks disagree,
I think dogs go to heaven.
Furry friends await.

Miss Precious, the gentle giant lap puppy.

Miss Precious, the gentle giant lap puppy.

Goodbye my friend

Forced to make a choice
Cancer riddled your body.
Run free in Heaven.

Miss Precious my gentle giant. You were loved & will always be missed.

Miss Precious my gentle giant. You were loved & will always be missed.

It is with tear-filled eyes that I write this photographic & Haiku memorial to my beautiful big girl Miss Precious. At 148 pounds this bullmastiff was still a lap puppy. She never knew how big she was. She left a huge pawprint in our hearts & we’re just beginning to grieve. May you run free now that you’ve crossed the Rainbow Bridge. I see you entertaining the angels by running in circles & playing crazy dog. Rest in peace my gentle giant.

The Rainbow Bridge

The Rainbow Bridge

You crossed the Rainbow Bridge.

I’ll see you again my furry friend.

I’m a happily married, retired mother of two adults & grandmother of four children. Adjusted at last to my move from WA state & all the green trees & abundant moisture to a different beauty of desert mountains in AZ. The winters in the Mojave Desert are bliss, the 127 degree summers are a test. It is a climate change for sure. I’ve learned to bloom where I’m planted. I must remember, plants have roots, people have legs & to use mine! I am an avid reader of almost all genres & usually have a baker’s dozen books being read at the same time. I craft greeting cards & enjoy sharing my creativity with family & friends. I also surf the internet looking for artists, photographs, quotes, etc. for my Joy is a Choice! Choose Joy Moment by Moment webpage. http://www.facebook.com/Joyisachoice I also make online jigsaw puzzles. http://www.facebook.com/Injoyspuzzlesforfun I'm a voracious reader & have started a book review page on facebook. I now have the freedom to read all night long, should I so choose & don't suffer the repercussions since I can nap the following day. It's the best time of my life.
