Me and Orion.jpg


Okay when Orion went to the vet...Vet said he had an enlarged heart. Arrhythmia, his heart was playin' Mingus...so we knew he could keel over anytime...no swimming; which he loved and no "ball" or logging...he liked the biggest sticks and limbs...well we might have rolled a ball a bit over those final months. When I lost him, he seemed to pass on a bit of his heart condition and as poetry has been my therapy...I wrote...



Dog

I have this friend
Who is a constant
companion
He looks to me
With eyes of communion
I share my thoughts with him
We adventure and roam
smelling all the smells
Some we have never known
Yeah I have this dog
My canine friend
A spirit of such devotion
it’s hard to comprehend
We explore and relax
Always finding simpatico
Like we were born to live
To sit and heel when we
have have nowhere to go
He is dog
but has many names
Just cog in a life
Traversing all the same
I call him buddy
I call him pal
But in truth I know
He showed me how
To enjoy life
And live each day
Like a friend should,who
always wants to play
My friend is dog
And he knows it
I share my dinner, and
he knows how to use it
I think about dog
all the time
How I miss him
That comfort sublime
We sometimes gauge
A life we have had
By the devoted friends
That were with us
Through good and bad.
I love dog
that memory
and sentiment
My tears wash over me
For a love
with no impediment
Dog is good
Dog is real
I think all
of you know
how I feel.
I love dog.
He came to us
When he was small
My daughter thought
He was our all
So submissive and
A joy to behold
White stars on his paws
And a creature to behold
We fell in love
From the start
So incredibly cute
It could break your heart
Orion of the Night Sky
Stars in on his feet
And in our eyes
We were in love”
From the first time
If there was a
Dog star by name set
It must have been
From a one Orion met
A love so great
has never been felt
For a dog, a pet
Of devotion felt
Orion of the Night Sky
Stars in on his feet
And in our eyes
The best dog ever
We live together
and bide our time
Because time is nigh.
 
My dog Meeshka, 14 now and got her as a rescue when she was 3. A bit blind and deaf now, but so am I - so we are a good pair. Loves fishing and boat rides, but we don't walk the rivers together anymore. And a perfect campnig companion (we get about 30 days a year) where she has proclaimed herself protector of the site from ravens, and rogue squirrels.
