Eyes Are Scared

The eyes are scared;
She stares at me
With the look of help me.
How can I help my dog,
Who is scared of storms;
Loud noises that come
When least except.
She comes to me;
I wrap my arms around
Telling her it is OK;
But still the look
I see in her scared eyes
Say I don’t like this at all.

Relaxing Dog

Sun shines through the pane;
Dog is on her back with two back paws;
Sticking straight out hovering;
Motionless like a balancing act.
The light shines upon her belly
Like she is getting a tan
While sleeping on the beach;
But she is indoors enjoying
The warmth that shines through;
Relaxing in one of many positions;
She will relax in.

Mothers Are There

Mothers are there to help us grow.
Mothers are there to protect us.
Mothers are there to teach us what we should know.
Mothers are there to fuss over us.
Mothers are there to take our hand;
To lead us down the right path.
Mothers are there when we need them;
For when we are sad or blue.
Mothers are there bringing joy and laughter;
For every child who grows under their care.
Mothers are the sun and moon;
Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers out there.

A Burst Come s Forth

Like a burst of heat
Spring explodes onto the scene.
Lilacs sprout out of their buds
Like jack-in-a-boxes ready to greet the day.
Ground sings a harmonious melody
From the weeds and grasses that grow forth.
Sun beams its energy down;
And the trees soak every drop of it
Bathing themselves to grow out their leaves.
There I sit on the porch
Relaxing in the cool shade
From the burst of heat that finally arrived.
