A Yellow Dog in Vauxhall Tube

Yes, I do dream of fields and chases
The noise of trains and you people staring
Don’t bother me.
No, I’m not cold –
 you must have noticed
how they cover me with this tartan blanket.
And I don’t mind being squashed a bit,
Snuggling close to Nigel’s warmth and smell.
Doing the job together – him and I.

You see, after I’d betrayed Jesus
I was forgiven.
God ordered my soul
to keep coming back as a dog,
So I’m forever allowed
To be a Friend

My poems are a new, unexpected and slighlty disturbing by-product of my therapy. Making them available for people to read and review was the next frightening step, but the feedback and generous words were absolutely amazing - thank you all - so maybe I will continue... :) It is a priviledge to be a part of the community with so much imagination and talent. I love reading poems and reviews..., such an interesting portrait of our egos :) May we all enjoy endless waves of inspiration and fun. more…
