For Blue

My girlfriend's father had a lovely dog who they had to put down last Saturday. I wrote three haiku in honor of her.
Old Blue missed Taffy
she just wasn’t the same dog
without her best friend.

I recall giving
Blue a good scratch, the last time
I saw her this month.
I threw the tennis
ball her way and thought I saw
Blue running for it.


You've found your way inside my head and now there's no way out!
