Bark to Silence

Woof! Woof!
Woof! Woof!
Turning head
Eyes scan through
Woof! Woof!
Woof! Woof!
Ears detect barking dog
In a unit amongst the block
Woof! Woof!
Woof! Woof!
Silence

Where? Where?
Where is the dog?
It barks
Do not disturb
My sleep

While my son, husband, and I walked home, we passed by a block. Suddenly, a mini dog’s bark was heard nearby. My son was searching the dog, but it stopped barking. As if the dog fell asleep so I explained to him that probably the dog informed not to disturb its sleep.

Sneak Comparison

Sneak Comparison

Sneak . . . Sneak . . . Sneak . . .
Shining a tiny torchlight onto the floor
As I walk into the bathroom
Not wishing to disturb
The sleepers around me.
Sneak . . . Sneak . . . Sneak . . .
Here, I return to my bed.

Sneak . . . Sneak . . . Sneak . . .
Quietly, a thief breaks into a house
Sneak . . . Sneak . . . Sneak . . .
Quietly, a thief snatches a wallet
Sneak . . . Sneak . . . Sneak . . .
Quietly, a burglar snatches a bag
Sneak . . . Sneak . . . Sneak . . .
Valuable stuff disappears.

Sneak . . . Sneak . . . Sneak . . .
A fish disappears from the plate
Abruptly, I peek into the kitchen
Long thin black tail wags happily
Leaving from the window
Then it disappears.
Oh! It is a black white cat!
But we gives him a warm welcome
With cat food, licking from our palm.
And he returns as a friend
And he returns as a playmate.
Fun to be with.

Suddenly, “sneak” spoke to me and reminded me of staying in my uncle’s house with my family. My family and I slept in the same room. So I need to sneak in order not to disturb their sleep. In other words, sneak is either used correctly or being abused for the selfish motive. Happosai in the Ranma 1/2 is a sneaky thief. Out of a sudden, I remembered a cat stealing food from the rubbish bin during my family’s stay at my uncle’s house before I purchase a house. Finally, the cat becomes our good friend knowing we care.
