The Cruelest Month - NAPOWRIMO 4-2-16

©2016 Noreen Braman


Companion and protector

comedian and mischief maker,

shredder of garbage

digger of gardens,

she of guilty eyes

and wagging tail

grows old in front of me.

Hesitant of step

except where squirrels are involved,

failing sight and hearing

unless forbidden treats are unattended,

still joyous doorway greetings

and toys flung across the room,

canine behavior once taken for granted,

and sung in poem and story,

now cherished as time counts down.
