About a Dog

Yesterday I was coming home and it wasn’t dark out yet so I decided to walk. I enjoy having these occasional introspective walks home, thinking about things and putting it all in perspective. I saw this little dog sitting in a window sill. I passed several other dogs and they all barked at me but this one was just sitting silently, watching. I wrote this poem about him.

I sit here quietly in the window sill

watching the world go by.

just quietly watching this busy road

and the people passing by.

I used to run along that street

but now i’m tired and have sore feet…

I sit here quietly in my window sill

thinking of you

tonight.
