Dogs Life

many dogs with stick

It’s time for a walk

My dog and me

Boots on

Wagging tail

Shooting out of the door

As fast as a bullet

.

Barks of delight

At the grass and the wind

Playmates arrive

Sticks in mouths

Friend growling

Running in circles

.

All three join in

Running round together

One stick in three mouths

Almost joined at the hip

No one dare bark

For fear of losing the stick

.

Game now over

Happy and slow

Home for breakfast

Exhaustion sets in

Flops on his bed

It’s a dogs life.

Schools out for summer

There is an eerie silence this morning

peace is all around

the cool air greets me

only the birds are singing

 

no cars roaring their engines

no shouts and screams at the kids

no dogs barking madly

just stillness and peace

 

There are long hot sunny days ahead

parents are gearing themselves

for excitement from kids at home

its the start of the school holidays

 

I’m enjoying the peace of the morning

no cars filling the roads

let the six weeks stretch out for a long time

I’m not sure the parents will agree.
