"let your boat of life be light, packed with only
what you need - a homely home and simple pleasures, someone to love and someone to love you,
enough to eat and enough to wear
and a little more than enough to drink:
for thirst is a dangerous thing"

mag 112

i stand alone
wondering what people
are all about
why they bury themselves
in so many layers 
seldom baring their souls
to each other 
or revealing
what truly exists under the thick
yet brittle covering
they hide behind
and when it cracks
and breaks
and falls
they hopefully know
that i will be here
for them
with my tail wagging

Thanks to Tess at The Mag


  1. ha i like it from the pups point of view and there are certainly things we could learn from them...as you did capture a bit of truth of us...

  2. the dog is always the best friend waiting for you at the most lonelly times

    birth death its all the same

    verification makes it really hard to comment. you'd get more comments if you turned it off. i had to do this several times to get it to work.

    1. thanks zongik - i have removed the verification. certain things not very user friendly and also apparently not that easy to become a "follower".

  3. I like your perspective...the last line nails the piece ~

    Nice to meet you ~

  4. I'm so glad to see that the dog as had its day too. What an interesting take too.

  5. i loved this!!...the puppers always waiting to help us out..brilliant..x

  6. nicely done! I love doing that myself. I have many poems written from the point of view of our four footed and winged cousins.

  7. Aw, animals will stick by you no matter what. Sweet.

  8. True, dogs often look as though they're trying very hard to understand us.

  9. All the kings horses and men were busy tryimg to hunt the dog down, but he too, had transformed himself into a hen.

  10. Through the eyes of a dog.....i like that....we could probably learn a lot from the mind of a dog....

  11. We need more tail wagging, patient waiters.
