My Dog Barks Incessantly Through The Night

My Dog Barks Incessantly Through The Night

A Poem by Odonko-ba
"

about a dog

"


my dog
barks incessantly
through the night

at ghouls and ghost 
only a dog's eye can sight

for I swear
when I look
there's nothing to be seen

he barks at the wind 
the trees and 
all in between

he barks at me
when I come to see 
what has him acting 
so strangely

he barks at shadows 
cast by the moon
a shadow of his tail 
has him all swooned

he barks at cars noise and
strangers in the night
he barks at every little thing 
that cause him fright

he barks at the neighbors cat
at the neighbors fence
he sits and dispense 
of barking
until spent

breaths
lap water
then barks again

he barks a melody 
that's well received
it seems 

for out of the night
the howling begins
dogs and cats alike

they bark at the moon
they bark at each other
they bark at
whatever
gives them pleasure

I love this poem Odonko-ba. The rhyming scheme and rhythm work together beautifully. I especially like the sixth stanza: "he barks at shadows/cast by the moon/a shadow of his tail/has him all swooned." This little piece of imagery speaks bounds and even casts a little mystery and liveliness to this canine. Thanks for sharing this.
