My friend Joy, came up with a small poetry challenge for me. Here is what she asked me to do.
Write a piece about a stray dog, no rhyme and no more than three words in each line and the third line in each must only be one word. Like this:
Bla bla bla
Bla bla bla
So, here is my quick response to it. Just a few lines; there is nothing noteworthy about it, though. What made me happy is that she really liked it! So I thought I should make this blog post to express my gratitude to her. So here goes:

There he sits
Staring at me

A lonely dog
His watering tongue

*  *  *

That's my master
Look at him

He teases me
Savoring juicy steak
