A Canine Goddess


A canine goddess, yet colloquially a stray bitch from the streets,
Lying lifeless on a lofty corner of a wooden edifice
Masquerading as a makeshift barn
A selfless inn for the frolicking creatures
Where stacks of golden brown hay
Liberate the burgeoning heart for a circadian slumber
A lofty bed to feed the fledgling innocence of her ravenous puppies
A bequest of the Gods, as milky tides liberate themselves in passionate flows
Emanating from her shrouded succulence, her reclusive source
To dispense from luscious summits, tips of milky icebergs
As a procession of infant puppies screech and scramble
For a precious grip of her selfless hypertrophic teats
Oh what charity is bestowed by the kingdom of the beasts
The noblest of altruistic wealth, idyllically bestowed to juvenile lips
From the prelude of colostrum, to the flowing rhapsody of a snowy-white fugue
As milk erupts like a geyser, to inundate,
The gluttonous cavities of clambering puppies
Oh what a breathtaking mural a mother and her puppies bestow
Yet to the self-centered man…………..she is just another bitch proliferating in bliss!

"Oh Day of Fire and Sun"
by Sara Teasdale

Oh day of fire and sun,
Pure as a naked flame,
Blue sea, blue sky and dun
Sands where he spoke my name;

Laughter and hearts so high
That the spirit flew off free,
