Smoky Eye

Smoky Eye

A Poem by barleygirl
"

note picture of my furry Lola . . .

"


As furry Lola snuggles near the fire
I’ve a tempting urge to often spy her
such dramatic browns sweet as pecan pie
this girl knows how to wear a smoky eye.

Her summon is boring holes in my back
if I don’t obey she tries another tack
flipping over to lift her upwards leg
tummy rubbing her smoky eyes do beg.

Such a sight no mere mortal can resist
a smoky face just waiting to be kissed
so what if her morning breath really reeks
I bury my face in those smoky cheeks.

Predictably the woodstove gives off smoke
a few wisps not enough to make us choke
Lola’s smoky nose begins a slow drip
just before a wet spraying sneeze does rip.

Searching for a cloth with which to blot
my morning facial of splattered dog snot.

Oh barleygirl! Oh Lola! You two are adorable. Margie I think I want to give both of you morning hugs. Her furry cheeks must be a warm place to let your cheeks meet... You are funny and Sweet with your descriptions, that is what makes me understand the relationship between you and her. I hope you give her a cloth to sneeze *smile*

Beautifully expressed...

How precious are our pets! Even with a snort and a "snot" this little furry baby brings joy beyond measure for you, and that is something to cherish, something to get up for! My little gal, Dita makes me feel that way too. She's a demanding Bodox, and oh how that stubborn dachshund rules my day, but I love it! We seem to overlook the negatives when the positives are winners!
Smiles for you and Lola!! The pic of her makes my heart just melt...she's just so dang adorable; makes me want to reach through the computer and give her a big hug!!!

Ya.. They are too sweet and must be cute :)
Not only smiling, but a chuckle out loud. My sister next door [man shy] has 10 cats she wakes up to every night like this. The little ones still trying to nurse whatever they get their mouth on. Funny, her house is so clean one would never know she had pets! Valentine

There is something about a snuggle with a pet that can do wonders for the soul. My dog Boston makes me smile no matter what. And I bet your mug is smooth as a baby's...well, you know what. Good job

Aw, that has got to be the most chilled out dog I've ever seen. Are you sure it was smoke from the stove? :)
