It being the holidays

missing

loved ones

one of the most loved

one of the best teachers

a little dog

all innocence

all love

all pure soul

oh, to nuzzle her fur

smell her dander

feel her tongue

upon my face

and her fluffy fur

against my skin

and Dutchie

another innocent

another tactile teacher

peace personified

oh to hold her in my lap

as she sleeps

and have her total trust

lying on blue-jeaned legs

oh for a visit

from either

or another gift

from Ko-ko

who shared a vision

of the beyond

after she passed

now

no wee ones

just an ache

where love still lives

  1. My cat friend, Jack was my teacher. He taught me how to love animals amongst other things. I still miss him after five years.

  4. I have learned the most from animals. Unlike some people, they have showed me the things I have as my example now.
