my little pet dog

is a quiet creature

who speaks with his eyes

he is attentive

to my every move

and studies each habit of mine

when I lay his little mat

for furry bodies to rest

each minute of each routine

he tells me he’s contented

with common simple things

every little pet dog loves

Never settle for a partner who confuses résumés for poetry. ~ vincenzo ©

let not this day
pass like any other
uncelebrated
unnoticed
obscured
doing what no human can do
scatter
doubt
and
cold
opening flood gates
of love and generosity
and speaking with tender voice
meaningful
birthday
wishes

be my messenger
opening the heart
to treasured memories
past and present
of love received
and sending warmth
into recesses
where sunshine cannot reach
console oh heavenly Father
the weeping prophet
who is my friend
so even wornout tunes
become renewed again
