001. My Dog

My dog running through the fields
her tongue hanging from gaping jaws
she slows to sniff a rabbit hole
nose close to the ground
spies a young rabbit
she bounds as it escapes

She whirls round
and spies another
but she hears my call
she races over
stopping just in time

She now lies sleeping
curled up in her bed
while she’s chasing rabbits
it’s all but in her head

: -) Love this - brought back memories - well captured imagery in a neat style.
This is like made of yeast. This dog is so adorable. Great poem indeed. Should you join any poet books?
This was such a sweet poem. I couldn't help but smile as I read it.
I like the poem. Dogs are best of friends with their owners, very loyal and faithful. If you spell its name backwards - it's god! . No wonder. Lovely poem. Thanks for sharing.
