Poetry Blogs (dog)
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

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...

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...

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...

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...

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 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...

Silly little Puppy,
silly little Dog.
she's an attention hog.
I love her
with her I
love to play.
But sometimes I
wish she'd just
For just a
to give me
she does test.
