Creatrix

Delighted to appear in the new issue of Creatrix!

evening rain
driving over the moon
in a pothole

early spring
the snowman shrinks
before my eyes

the long journey
down our path
this snail

It’s a dog’s life

Dedicated to Holly and Murphy, my inspirations, with love

Walking in the park,

Giving a friendly bark.

 

Playing with my stick,

Learning a great new trick.

 

Jumping up with glee,

Settling on a comfy knee.

 

Running off my lead,

Eating an interesting weed.

 

Trying to catch a bird,

Ignoring the ‘no’ word.

 

Wolfing down my tea,

Chasing a buzzing bee.

 

Curling up with my mate,

Enjoying a perfect date.

 

Snuggling in a heap,

Snoring in my sleep.

 

Dozing through dawn,

Waking with a yawn.

 

Looking forward to another day,

Knowing this life’s ok.
