Day 13: Best friend

Since yesterday I learned about a haibun, today – without a prompt even – I attempt my first tanka: 5, 7, 5, 7, 7 syllables per each of the five lines. Before they get the idea. And the photos are from a lovely walk yesterday.

Challenge 13: Today, we challenge you to write a poem in which the words or meaning of a familiar phrase get up-ended.

A friend in need is
not a friend with weed but is
indeed a dog, that’s
better. A woman’s best friend
is a dog, while she is man’s.

    1. Thank you, Dan. 🙂 It was a glorious walk without a boar in sight to make us run. 😀 (We only saw one once and it was pursued by hunters, and one other somewhere else, but I keep seeing their marks and am always on the lookout.)
