DMC: "Embrace puppy face" by Leane Gill

Embrace puppy face.
Wet kiss, soft snuggly warm snout.
World an adventure –
First sip from a bowl – play time.
Dunks face, paw, and then all in!

Margarita Engle has challenged us to write a tanka this month. She suggests we think of it as a five-line travel diary about a subject of our choice. Click HERE for more details.

Send your tanka to TodaysLittleDitty (at) gmail (dot) com, or use the contact form in the sidebar to the right. All contributions will be included in a wrap-up celebration on March 27th. One lucky participant will win an autographed copy of Margarita's delightful new picture book:


  1. Love the unbridled joy of this little puppy, Leane. I should remember to channel this sweet pooch when writing poetry!

  2. Captures the essence of puppies.

  3. Love this! I can just picture this sweet puppy!
