Haiga 152

Haiku by Keiji Minato.

Keiji teaches the English Literature at a university in Kyoto.

Cold days here. Dogs with fir coats, thick one and thin one.
Yet, still, they look so cold.

I added a bit of warm color to the haiga for thier comfort.

First I must thank John McDonald for it is through his zen speug haiku blog that I found you.
The dog following the dog in the cold weather is a strong and poetic image.
I will follow your blog with great interest,
Best wishes,
