On Puppy Love.. a pantoum

 

In the expression lies the answers

All that sweetness carries the heart homeward

Of puppy love in the fluff and cuddle

How clever nature is to know the work of that tease

 

All that sweetness carries the heart homeward

Fills the pulses up with the flutter of desire and want

How clever nature is to know the work of that tease

The breath of it is the scent of seduction

 

Fills the pulses up with the flutter of desire and want

Swoons the mind into the charms of the beloved

The breath of it is the scent of seduction

The heart so open it has room for even more love

 

Swoons the mind into the charms of the beloved

Who can deny the pleasure of all that sweetness?

The heart so open it has room for even more love

The infancy of love cherishes the romp of the heart

 

Who can deny the pleasure of all that sweetness?

Bring on all that tender and joy

The infancy of love cherishes the romp of the heart

Wrap yourself in the gift of a heart truly open

 

Bring on all that tender and joy

Of puppy love int eh fluff and cuddle

Wrap yourself in the gift of a hear truly open

In the expression lies the answer.

Treats In My Pocket


day 9, NaPoWriMo..

IMG_3814

 

My pockets all have puppy treats in them

This Winter baby found me this Spring

In the ridiculously cuteness of mask

and black and white fluff

 

The Romanians had him in Inkster

Cozied up with his litter mates

Deciding which way to wiggle and wag

Racing for the pile of microwaved hotdogs

 

In who gets in first wins that load of process

With the piddles on the floor wiped fast away

In the flurry of fur in and out of that crate

A tumble of puppies in the unsure of it all.

 

We call it a litter only now I think it’s a tumble

A Tumble of puppies all over themselves for the

food win.  For the attention getters, for the love.

For me to add puppy treats to all my pockets

 

In the praise, in the training, in the just because

you’re the cutest damn little puppy I have ever seen

and I want all that wagging, bright eyed goodness

all over me as often as possible.

 

My pockets all have puppy treats in them

The weight of them is slight and I jiggle them

in my fingers as we walk the new walk down

the street in this new to you neighborhood.

 

Of smells and leaves and Spring greening

Of new sounds and the intense alertness that

you have of the world around you in the trot

and pride of ownership of this street.

 

We get to know each others ways and in the days

that come there will always be treats of praise and love

jiggling in my fingers in my pockets, as we

jaunt together smelling the good Earth.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~

Feeling very grateful..

The Bandit, ‘Boo’


IMG_3715

All the joy of life races around the room

A white ball of fur in play grabbing

each moment with the newness of living

Drenched in curiosity

 

Lewis and Clark, and the famed Columbus

have no hold on this little explorer

Nose to every fleck of discovery

Tasting it like the ingestion will fill him up

 

Only to have every small thing fingered

out of his mouth before the swallow

It’s all his and he knows it even when it’s not

Stewarding his way to safety in the no matter what

 

The romp fatigues with a sudden flop

Gathering him in for a cuddle of love

Held to the sweetness of his baby’s breath

As it slows to sweet slumped snores

 

I take the responsibility on as a gift

Gratitude fills me up in puppy love

Forever changed by the welcomed journey

He’s a Bandit.  He stole my love

Radiant Reaping


DSCN1768

 

There need not be any grim in the reaping.

 

The close, the sweep, the gathering up, scattered

lays to the Earth the compost of what new

might become from the rich loam of what

has departed.

 

The thing is, is in the attachment to what

at last gave fruit, and needs in the end

of harvest to be laid back to Earth

was of skin and bone.

 

Heart to heart connection that no Autumn’s

coming Winter could foretell the loss caught

in the stream of tears carried away on a river

to another land.

Grief floods the shores of this land a salty sea

and in the one day not long from now

my ship will see you on the shore sunning

a radiant wave

 

A gestured call to share our Light again

reaping the radiance of our time together

again in how love holds the heart forever

in the always-has-been

LOVE ETERNAL


PUPPY DORJE

 

Despaired relief in contradiction.  Impossible has no place to hide as it gains momentum. What must find space in the vast spaciousness when the body comes to closure settles in the imagination.  The gone to a greater far beyond incomprehensible.

To take life before life finds it’s natural conclusion questions what is ‘natural’.  The eyes of the loved oneforever made blank to this life’s seeing.  To ‘be seen’ is one of Spirit’s great gifts to humans, taken away when death seizes the senses.  Inviting the impossible to take over.  To trust the great Infinite to hold some magic to be seen again with out eyes.  In the knowing that Love has nothing to do with this body and everything to do with an awakening of the Soul.

Still, grateful for the wonder that a body, mind, a heart, the senses, share in the living.  In the being seen with eyes of love unconditional.  Now closed and gone from view.  Now gathered in the minds eye, in the heart’s longing, in the trust that a greater wonder gives care to the loved ones highest good.  That the meet again will be insured, because how can it not In the embrace of God, Oneness, Spirit, Source, The Infinite.

 

If there is a wander to find,

than let me wander

the vastness to

find you again.

 

My soul will recognize you,

it loves you for eternity.

MY DOG…


in the sunlight

in the sunlight

He lays in the patch of sun light

Old bones and cloudy eyes

Feeling the warmth seep in

Sweetness is his gift shared

Tender heart unconditional

 

God spelt backwards

No coincidences in the spirit

Of that Spirit held to Love

Whatever you choose to call it

In the Universe of loyalty

 

He lays there shifting his bones

Seeking to find the sweet spot.

Giving a gaze of tender

With a fluff of tail wiggle

A puppy sigh and rest

 

My heart is big for this boy
