Obsession #WQWWC

She says that I am Irish

To be fair, I’m not so sure…

Is Irish like Italian,

Where passion has no cure?

Where seeking to drive passion out…

A new nail through the old…

The new feeds no obsession,

Is ignored and leaves you cold?

No matter what the state it’s in,

When all is said and done,

For me obsession simply means

There can be only One.

A small dog laughing Bedlam with a tennis ball Empty moments filled.

    I love the haiku Sue and the images are so appealing. Have you thought of getting Ani one of those tennis ball machines that automatically spits the balls out ?


  2. ksbeth says:

  3. Green Embers says:

    Well, Ani is quite the poet! πŸ™‚


  4. Ah yes, thos tennis ball moments, repeating over and over and over. The haiku says it! Happy to go to bed smiling.


  5. Judy Martin says:

    HaHA! I love this, and Ani looks so adorable! πŸ™‚


  6. You can add Spanish to your list of the obsessed. Finbar does the same with tennis balls, doesn’t play with them just slowly and deliberately peels them like oranges. He gets a reel buzz out of peeling tennis balls.


  7. Reblogged this on Smorgasbord – Variety is the spice of life and commented:
    There is nothing more lovely than starting the day with Ani.. Sue Vincent’s muse and minder.. a face that launched a thousand tennis balls!

    My Buzzy’s favorite is a white fuzzy handed down from three deceased owners. Every dog adore it. We usually have two American Eskies and the youngest always grabbed this baby whenever the dominant was occupied. Bay mourns the whole time it’s n the laundry. He plays wit it all day and takes it to bed with him. He chews it’s nose as he drifts off to sleep. Occasionally he slips it utside and we play keep away.


  11. Aah, Ani. Who wouldn’t love that face and those innocent brown eyes.
    Love the poem. Ani’s so s.m.a.r.t.
    The haiku is an added treat. (( ❀ ))

  14. Sue, I loved your take on obsession, or should I say Ani’s take on obsession? πŸ˜€ What a delightful way with words you have. And, the Haiku was perfect too! Ani is just gorgeous! ❀


  15. A wonderful piece about a wonderful wee girl. Nicely done, Sue.
