Post 243: dog, goodness, yearning, South, God

by Carol Bass

old dog in the summer sun

haloed in steaming morning dew
spread eagle
warming her soft belly
changing positions reluctantly
across the dirt
catching the grazing sunspots

later in the day
the sizzling sun
pushes her to cool shadows
just like us
she loves seeking
the ultimate comfort in this paradise
where we’ve all been placed
to find our way home
