D For Dog

the way oh dear you wiggle your tail
the way you comely sit
i like the way you wet the poles
i like the way you shit

and your charming tongue that’s always out
and ears that point the sky
when I see you next to me
every woe, they just all die

i love the way you dig a hole
i love the way you fall
i love you when you walk like us
i love you when you crawl

i trust you like a rising sun
i love you like a star
i know all words have failed to tell
what a lovely being you are

    C For Cat

    Curiously curled at my feet,
    my little cat is so, so sweet.
    Not only that; there is her fur,
    and the way my cat does purr.

    Also the way she licks herself is neat;
    her flank, her butt, and her four feet.
    Well, if Kanav can use....the word shit,
    i guess i'll use butt. Don't have a fit!

    thanks for sharing. i'll send this little gem (kanav's that is) to MyPoemList. (i get points that way, don't i? ? !)

    Perhaps he wakes early up with man.
    He goes to sleep late like the latter
    And lives a life without any love for his fellow beings...

    But we like this dog all, Kanav. (Report) Reply

    Tongue in cheek humour explains your love for a doggie, how man would be if his faithful mind was the same as the dog...great fun read...regards (Report) Reply

    Lovely words Kanav we now have seen a different side of you. You are a great dog owner as well as a creative poet. A dog can put a smile on any ones face. (Report) Reply

    The last two lines of the poem tells us much more about the man's best friend, the dog, than what anyone can describe. Dogs are know to have rescued people from drowning, fire, etc. etc. A beautiful write. (Report) Reply
