I rate no kisses In ordinary moments, But I am also The Provider Of The Food. In the minutes which I fill the ceramic bowl I come clothed in praise, When I set the food down, there, No one is more beloved. Next, I sit; I am Slathered in grateful kisses I have no escape, So food is the way to win – All pure doggie hearts, Walking is miraculous Work too, so dogs admire you.
It was a day To Rebound from being In lockdown, A day Maybe To run far and fast Away, Hope thought so Anyway. As she walked out The door she leapt Forward Pulling against restraints Of her leash thinking Perhaps this once her human Would let go, Praying doggie prayers For freedom though She knew nowhere else, She Would rather be. It did not work, It never did, Hope had tried A thousand times Before. So, she prayed for treats, Toys and petting from Her human And tossed her tail In the breeze Like The beauty she Was convinced She was made to be.
Leaf light filters through Casting mosaic patterns Brown, crimson, golden Painted floor of woods cushioned So footfalls are hardly heard. Somewhere a dog howls, A coyote snickers and yelps An owl asks questions No one deigns to give reply Quiet nestles peace to rest. As dusk falls, followed By the skeins embroidering Night, a crystal moon Sighs strewing pale reflections Of incandescent day bright. Beyond window glows Secrets like insulation Keep swallowed stories As deep as Earth and Ocean Full as the starred Milky Way. In hearts brilliant hot Coals aroused to give new flame Love Becomes Again Whatever the driving force, We, humans, find home together.
Every month it is The same – others on me have Claims, well, more upon My funds, they all want money, For my life to smoothly run. I allocate this Here, that there, everyone gets Their (un)fair share of What I have got which is not A lot, but I cannot complain. The dogs and I, we Still can eat and have a place To stay, play, and sleep. Life is not bad, could be worse, I will keep smiling, happy, At peace with what is My universe, thankful Christ Oversees all things Taking care that we are well, Safe, blessed beyond deserving.
