Walking my dog into the labyrinth
he has no sense of following the path
(marked with stone and showing the way)
he prefers random ins and outs
sniffs along breaking the barriers
(set by man to keep us in line)
smudge on his nose
dVerse prompt to write a quadrille and use the word smudge. I actually know a dog named Smudge but this is not about him. This is about my dog who always has his nose in just about everything.

Maybe sometimes we need to venture out of the maze a bit too.
Smudge sounds like a great name for a dog.
Man’s rules and dog’s rules are two different things. That said, there is much dogs can teach us humans but alas little we can teach them except parlor tricks.
Ah, dogs and children love to smudge their noses up against everything!
I was so not expecting the word labyrinth in this poem when I began reading it – well done, Jane!
