Nighttime Romp

A Poem by barleygirl
"

collaboration with Jon Roggie . . .

"


He nudges the door open
water dripping from his tail
after splashing in the rainfall
paws paint a splattered trail.

Grabbing a couple dry towels
before chasing down the hall
I curb his muddy enthusiasm
to dodge a bedspread brawl.

Curls in front of the fireplace.
Tired.
Paws twitch,
chasing a dream.

Yip! Snip! Whine! Yip!
Sleepytime sobs
spread smiles.

Here in California, we don't get much rain in recent years -- only 5" (13cm) so far this winter! . . . So wet dogs are not a problem very often!

The contrasting styles of the stanzas helps to create the two viewpoints of the " protagonists". The self protective human v. resigned soggy dog. Our response with our muddy hound is slightly less poetic, but quite effective... ** smile**.

The fun part is being able to match a couple of voices.

You sure this is the dogs we're talking about.
Or is it just my filthy mind.
Is this maybe a euphemism for something else.
