Kaila George

Taking my Dog for his Walk


Nature as a way of creeping up on you

Unexpectedly

When taking your dog for a walk

And you can see him in the distance running after some unknown object

When it bursts into view...a rabbit as fast as lighting runs across your view

With your dog right behind in hot pursuit.....then they disappear from view

The sun shines down beating the heat upon your face as you watch your dog

Running from one end of the reserve to the next still chasing that darn rabbit

Then trotting back with tongue hanging you can see him breathing faster

He sits next to you panting content to sit in the shade of the tree

He makes me smile that dog....grins...he really does

He perks up his ears as he hears the birds flying above...then try's his best

To chase after the ducks that is just out of his reach...silly dog

We had a good day today...smiles...I so enjoy my time with him in the sun

As I take his leash and we walk home

OH GAWD...now he wants to take me for a run...help meeeeeeeeeeee! ! ! !

Have a nice day all...be back later's....waves

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

I speak not, I trace not, I breathe not thy name;
There is grief in the sound, there is guilt in the fame;
But the tear that now burns on my cheek may impart
