Treasure Island

Unintelligible Susurration


Gansito


He runs like a cheetah
after its prey.
He must be quick or else
lose his chance
and wait another day.

He hops through the forest
of yellow dead grass
in a rabbit-like manner
similar to that of a buck
running from a shotgun.

He is a kitten purring
as he is petted
in a loving manner.
His back even arches
like a cat
when I pet him too!

All in all, he is
many animals more
but listing them all
would surely take
a year.

So I will spare you the grief
and tell you
that 'he' is not at all
a person
or a cheetah
or a rabbit
and he is most certainly
not a cat.

This 'he' is
nothing but a dog
named Gansito
and he is my dog.
But sometimes it seems
he might have been
reincarnated as a dog
from being a completely
different animal.

Poem of the Day

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
