Best friend

Fallen from the table

Devoured in an instant

Opportune, she lives for here and now

Like smile on an infant


Found amongst the grass

Eaten – pure instinct

The lips, the sense of smell inspect

What to us is non-existent


She lives her life from down below

We live ours from up above

Man’s best friend protects us from

Dangers we’re unaware of


Listen – to us, the sound is silence

See what to us is blind

Sense what we can only dream

Awake to love of all mankind


Inspired by my choc lab, Kahlua, pictured as a puppy here.
