National Poetry Month -- Haiku 23

I just got home from teaching my three-and-a-half hour Thursday night marathon.
And I have a school visit tomorrow.
And I'm in one of my "can't seem to sleep through the night even though I'm exhausted" phases.
So, nothing witty or thoughtful or philosophical tonight.

Just this:

Haiku 23

old dog and soup bone
picture of satisfaction;
how little one needs
