Sticks

Sticks

A Poem by Einstein Noodle


My dog showed me


sticks

Her name is Bella and
she showed three sticks to me

on our walk

sticking 
out of the creek water where
she stood slurpingupdrink


Bella is faun colored and 
Bull Mastiff'd

wide mouthed frog

one hundred twenty five pounds full
 ..

she showed me
one long, finger thick stick with tails ...and another
eighteen inches ...ends shredded and

one for my mind

One

For

My

Mind

its the process you see
we took them home one day and
i made a bird

she showed me sticks
i made a bird

it's flying now behind my eye
every time we walk along the creek. 

The process .....

Do you see?

her sticks?

Dogs have a way of showing how... especially your precious Bella who has the imagination so many human beings' lack, their eyes and minds too busy looking at the ground.

All my two not long ago did this morning was rush about in the sunshine, wondering where on earth it came from.. didn't like to tell them that rain's due!

Your lively imagination is magic both in creating stick figures that fly across water as if born to it.. and words that fly into your readers' hearts!

I suppose that's why dogs lead, and humans follow.
Dogs have remarkable abilities. From sensing cancer, to everyday tasks humans could never contemplate.

Quite unique, another gift from the Dogs methinks. Mine is a young Border Terrier 'Brulee' just brought me part of a brick, maybe I will build a wall one day.

Animals are so intelligent
seems she sees beautiful in many
things as I do poetry is everywhere.

There is still life in the wood even
though it isn't growing somewhere
it's that energy she was just showing
you saying what can you do with
this daddy.

Like my experience yesterday
September 24 2017
before dinner
at 6pm I leaned over
too far near the sharp end of
the small table to plug in my
cell phone to charge,

And ended up bumping
the right side of my forehead
but no bleeding but
It really hurt I'm clumsy
like my mother,

But kit she's
a beautiful white German shepherd
and she wanted to lick my ouch spot
On my forehead all better
was so cute lol... thought I'd share
that experience with you I might
make it into a poem.

Thank you for sharing
This lovely jewel. Take care friend

What a splendidly rendered story poem, Gene! ✨
And, that beautiful bird is a masterpiece of creative art, straight from its finder's and crafter's creatively concerted effort.
I'd say you make an excellent team … too bad Bella cannot wield a pen, giving us her thoughts, too, but I doubt they'd be far different than your own amazingly entertaining, vividly entreating version.
One unique aspect of this piece is the manner in which you've formed your lines and verses, combining with the before and after pictures of those "Sticks" … I'd say Gene and Bella belong together.
I love it all, knowing, too, that wee original structure is worthy of its place in an art museum for all to enjoy, and what a lovely finish and presentation, My Friend.

Thank you for the wondrously unforgettable thrill! ⁓ Richard : )

The concept of something "flying behind my eye" is super duper! Dogs see things a little differently than we do and of course poets see things differently to begin with. What a lovely write...filled with imagination and happiness just to be on a nature walk. Lydi**
