In memory of our dear family dog Jessie, I would like to re blog these prose poems I had written about him during 2016 – R.I.P. my dear loving friend…
— Our Dog Jessie —
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. – Ο – Poem © Karen Robinson, July 2016 ∗Please click here to read the back-story about this Poem
— Home —
It is quiet and peaceful at this very moment. There are no ‘world worries’ in my space. I hear birds awakening to the beginning of a new and promising day. Inside here in my home it is safe and warm, and outside, surrounding my home, is a garden paradise grown and crafted by the loving hands of a man I cherish. Here, I know, is a place for me to run and hide - to shelter from the outside world’s daily challenges; a place where I can be myself – unafraid, comforted. The family dog sits beside me, endearingly, as always. Together we wait for the morning-sun to show its friendly face and when my husband arises, from his night’s sleep, it is then we will take coffee and talk in the security of each other’s company. It is quiet and peaceful here – this blessed place I call home. – Ο – Prose Poem © Karen Robinson - September 2016 *Please click here to read the back-story about this Prose Poem
Home will never be quite the same now that you are no longer with us. Thank you my dear friend, our family dog Jessie – you shared all your love and devotion, and you will be greatly missed by us all….
NB: A special thank you to Judy Bird who continues to provide me with ongoing support with my creative writing efforts.
