Poetry Slam

During one of our post-turkey naps together last weekend, Diana and I decided to have a friendly poetry slam. We each wrote a haiku and a 2/4/6/8/2 Cinquain. See if you can figure out the poet for each. Enjoy!

Haiku 1

barking together
rescues rejoice and demand
cheese for us all

Haiku 2

gathered 'round
hereditary ghosts abide
within and without

Cinquain 1

kibble
filling my bowl
generously topped off
lovingly mixed in with heavy hand
cheddar

Cinquain 2

thankful
dining as one
genetic ghosts caution
within and without our transience
kindness
