old jokes

Carpe Diem Universal Jane #11 renga "Old Jokes With Me"

it’s so rotten
no other dogs enjoy
old jokes with me

rolling eyes across their face
a punchline too deep for dogs

wagging tails
slapping the barroom floor
mimic clapping hands

evening sky filled with
pastel brushstrokes 

gusty air
birds huddled along the wire
a chorus line

knuckles along the tree branch
flexing in the stormy night

rolling over
the panda smiles with delight
bamboo snack

the glassy pond is filled
with pastel clouds and frog songs

knock knock
what requires a greeting?
a woodpecker

    1. It was fun just to look out the patio door and let my mind go! When I read the one Jane had it appeared to just be a series of independent thoughts. So I gave it a go!
