Watching the dog run
circles ’round the picnic table –
channeling young dog.

My toast’s in trouble —
the dog stares, mouth open,
and wills it to fall.

Bright green tennis ball
carried by Skeeter, the dog,
makes him feel so proud.

Dog paces about —
bright green tennis ball in mouth —
he’s ever hopeful.

Throw the dog a ball
and watch him bound after it.
Ears flappping. Happy.

Dog went for a run
through the field — needed a bath —
now sits in his crate.

Wind blows the trees —
the dog’s ears fly back and he
squints to meet the breeze.
