A Slow Walk To Nowhere

entry picture

A slow walk to nowhere

A metaphor for life

Hills and valleys flatten

Amid the daily strife

 

Of drifting ever onward

The ending never clear

If today or if tomorrow

The last hurrah is here

 

Like walking the dog through raindrops

Pellets of water coating my head

Sniffing the ground for nothing

Or something being dead

 

Longing for resolution

Holding h...

One man and his dog.

entry picture

There is a musky smell, warm and welcoming, like the smell of damp dog. The hoof prints leave a breadcrumb trail to see where the wandering goats have hidden. Tiny cloven feet, so dainty they grip on to steep slopes, trip trap along the rocky mountain side.

 

He stands watching them through his steamy spectacles.  The ferocious biting wind sears his aged skin, his wiry black beard protects m...

My Old Dog

entry picture

She is 17 years old,

How many dog years is that?

She is grey around the muzzle.

Very little body fat.

Chicken carcass fills her skin,

So fragile and so weak.

Blind blue opaque eye,

Her temperament so meek. 

She sleeps stretched out,

Small brittle arthritic bone.

She twitches as she sleeps,

Time left now is life on loan.

She sleeps so soundly,

this warm summer...

JOY GONE BAD

Running thru the grass

was a blast!

til my paw

got stuck in the mud

down I go 

with a broken toe

now here I lie

with a cast...

Becks Poem (Mistaken Identity)

I wrote this for my now fiance not long after we first started seeing each other after her love for cats (and her tongue in cheek insistance she was one) inspired me to start writing again, after maybe 5 years of not picking up a pen.  I recently proposed to her through a series of short poems taking us on a treasure hunt around Edinburgh looking for J K Rowling inspired landmarks, but that's anot...

Dog

Paws and snouts and whiskers and drool

And muscle and fur and eyes so sharp, kind and cruel

And light and strong and high in their jump

And eager and always hungry and always looking for more

And sleek and shiny and fast and then still

And smelling and sniffing and pushing and tearing

 

Playful and wanting and watching and rolling

And laying and nestling and warm and smelly

WHAT'S AFOOT, OR PERHAPS, A'PAW

 

What’s a’foot, or perhaps, a’paw?
The doggy population just continues to grow.
One, two, three four legged ‘friends’, stretchy leads a’tangle.
Dogless people do beware, those sniffing noses approach, at the right angle.
Leaping up to a gent, aiming straight at the lap
For ladies wearing mini’s they don’t need a map

It all adds to humankind’s woes
Who’s in charge?  When we see that al...

Our Peanut Puppy

Silly little Puppy,

silly little Dog.

She's hyperactive,

she's an attention hog.

 

I love her

to pieces,

with her I

love to play.

But sometimes I

wish she'd just

go away.

 

For just a

few minutes,

to give me

 a rest.

 

Cause sometimes

my  patience,

she does test.
