INTRODUCTION

The process of trying to keep up with my creative writing is a challenge for me.  Life just demands at times, my attention elsewhere, but I feel so rewarded when I do take the time to reflect and write…

 

POEM INSPIRATION

So at a moment when my thoughts were still, I glanced across from where I was working, and looked towards our old dog Jessie.  He was sitting at the window looking longingly out and up towards the garden path. It was that time of the day when he would wait for his master to come home and today was no exception for Jessie! Oh to have the unconditional love of a dog…it’s such a beautiful love.  With those thoughts in mind, I wrote this poem for Jessie our old dog.

 



Title:  "Our Dog Jessie" Poem
 

His golden hair glimmers in the warm, afternoon winter-sun,

He is waiting, waiting, waiting for his very special one.


There seems to be no end to his vigilant gaze

as he watches for his master to grace the stony path maze.


For Jessie is truly a well-loved family member of ours,

He has given us so much love in both good and bad hours.


If only his master knew how adoringly his dog waits,

For the return of his master’s presence, - our dog’s best of mates.

CONCLUSION

Jessie is a good, loyal friend and family member.  He always greets us on our return home with a warm and friendly greeting and a wag of his tail – we are so lucky to have him…
