Dog Will Not Let Me Write

Dog will not let me write
She comes over with ball
Must wait for her to sleep at night

Dog sees me in my sight
came over from the hall
Dog will not let me write

I play with her for her delight
In my mind my poem I scrawl
Must wait for her to sleep at night

Continue to play until the end of light
Full of energy she is small
Dog will not let me write

All I have to do is sit tight
She begins to get tired; drops ball
Must wait for her to sleep at night

I will have to write by flashlight
For it is now night fall
Dog will not let me write
Must wait for her to sleep at night

The Art Of Playing With Dog Toys

Art of playing with dog toys
Takes skills and years of practice.
Don’t just randomly choose your toy.
But, keep changing the toy
So not to get bored every day.
Sniff one that is still in one piece.
Gently take in mouth.
Run with it for awhile.
Stop to shake it back and forth.
Throw it in the air.
Watch it fall in delight.
Now to let the squeaking out.
Delight should heighten to
Take it in mouth and run around.
Prance until you are weary.
Laying down panting with toy near by.
From there it’s time for a nap
To repeat the playing of your doggy toy.

Playing Flute Is Hard

She struggled with notes
Trying to play fast
Fingers moved stiffly
Music notes runs up and down
Slur groupings one after another
Falter as air deflates out.

Her cheeks red flush
She takes quick breath
Trying to catch up
A measure behind fellow flutists.

Music seems there is no rest
Her fingers falter
Slip between the keys of the flute
She looks exhausted; crestfallen.

Perhaps different instrument
Is what she needs
To continue enjoy being in the band.
