From Atti's 2nd Rebecca

Remember his beach
Play between thunder and dusk
Heart, find your ocean

Adopted bird

Tiny paws aflight
Black, bittersweet spot of joy
Nessie's eagle child

Big Tommy Cometh

He'll fetch and return
A dog in a scottie suit
Not wise, but all heart

Summer's Girl

Home in the evening,
She greets me with less spunk
Her grey beard a slow smile

Ajax hunting

A curious leap,
Joyful bark and playful pounce
Not Amused, Fat squirrel?

The way you loved him

A hothouse orchid
Rubbing his belly sweetly
That's what you called him

My little black boy
Walk, play, sniff the universe
Remember your toys

Thinking of Atti

Sorrow blossoms on
A winter road. I chase him
Beyond the horizon

The arrival of Ajax

Beautiful black dog
In my kingdom of despair
Remind me of joy

Long day's journey home
carried by love, sleeping dogs
Travel fast and far

Galveston: Stella's duty

She'll not let them stray
Wandering along the shore
Circle of yellow

Dancing in mid air
Salty dog bites salty disk
Ocean waves applauding

Galveston: Atti's paw

Fifteen paws on sand
One hangs in the air lightly
Making him special


Monday, April 25, 2005

Galveston: Tired girl

Small Black legs churning
crashing waves, and undertow
too much sand and sea

Nessie Beach

Galveston: Nessie at the Beach

Biting salty foam
Rough morning waves splash wildly
tasting endless sea

Nessie Beach
