I watch him waken from his nap
Stretching, rolling, finally standing
He looks about
Searching for his newest challenge
The little tail in constant animation
The stubby legs running, stumbling
Chasing all that moves
A brief pause to sample flora
Tugging on a stubborn weed.
Youthful bravado on display
Chewing on a broken stick
Carried around for all to admire
Off again with his unsure gait
To seek another treasure
I pick him up and reap the bounty
Of a soft wet tongue on my cheek
While he wiggles to once again be free
On he goes, sniffing, tasting
Finding life in all he sees
And, when all his dragons have been slain
And imagined foes subdued,
He returns
With heavy eyes and weary legs
Lays his head upon my shoe
And dreams his puppy dreams

About oldmainer

I am a retired manager living in Southern Maine and a would be writer of poetry, narratives, short stories, and random opinions, and that's how Oldmainer was born. Recently, I decided to try an experiment. I added photography to the mix, using only a cheap cell phone with a limited camera and the editing software that came with it, and added the blog site Inklings at poormanspoet.wordpress.com to showcase the results. So, feel free to use whatever you find interesting or worthy, but please honor the terms of my copyright when and if you do. They may not be much, but they are still a piece of me. I appreciate your checking me out and hope that you find something that will encourage a return visit. Thanks for stopping by.
