Morning With Dogs

Dawn breaks warm and wet,
lapping and licking my face
with a drawbridge tongue.

For the September Challenge at Haiku Heights

A "drawbridge tongue." What a wonderful concept.

An oddly beautiful image, face to face for morning greetings.

How cute. I used to let my dog Daisy get up on the bed and lick my face. My ex declared this "weird." Daisy outlasted the ex!

A lovely read. had some difficulty to adjust to this drawbridge tongue, it's so different from the meaning I know.

Chuckling... I often awaken to a similar drawbridge, but it's paved in gravel and says "Meow!" as it licks my nose.

Great image! Our (big) dog would come and just stare until we woke up. How did this work?

Dogs definitely live in the moment, and drag us with them--a good thing for both. Great way to start the day(drawbridge is an excellent image.)

I didn't write for this prompt ~ But your drawbridge tongue is a creative spin ~
