A Mondo

Felines strolling
Joyful, carefree outside
Is it fair I am inside?

Sniffing felines
Meeting greeting a whimper
Careful they have a temper.

Dear Friends — Presenting my old dog 🦮 — new tricks! Thanks for reading. 🙏

A mondo is a short, sometimes, collaborative poem originating in Japan, presenting a question and answer while trying to glean meaning from nature. Mondos can be as short as a one-liner or as long as two 5–7–7 syllable stanzas, the first presenting the question; the second the answer.

Inspired by William J Spirdione’s piece provided below.
