Rainbow Bridge Revisited

 

During my morning, daily reflection; I not only thank my Higher Power for all the gifts I have received.  I thank Her for every animal who has graced my life.

…Not the least hard thing to bear when they go from us, these quiet friends, is that they carry away with them so many years of our own lives.

  • John Galsworthy

 

A dog not only gives what they have; they give to us….everything they are!

Poem # 2: You Are

divided-3

You are…

Santa red and Hawaiian Tropics.

On a pastel summer’s day.

The grin on a dog riding the waves of wind.

Two left feet on a summit’s retreat.

You are…

Home, when all hope is gone.

The 3rd and the 4th time I play my favorite song.

A distant memory that I walk to again, and, again.

The vision of simplicity from holding a hand.

Cars of banana yellow.

And,

my giving in…

Instead of selling out.

You are…

Beef jerky and chewing gum.

Routine in chaos.

Mayhem in a road filtered with frost.

A safe place to go when feeling sorry.

The morals to my fabled story.
