TAME

 

Please, I want to go outside.

No reason for you to hide.

The winds bring rain.

But they are tame.

 

I won’t fall or melt

If hail were to pelt.

I’ll be forever in your debt

If you allow me to get wet.

 

I’m pulling on my chain.

You don’t need half a brain

To know I’m ready to go free.

See what a great pet I can be.

 

OUTSIDE

 

 

Please, I want to go outside.

No reason for me to hide.

The winds bring rain,

but they are tame.

I won’t fall or melt

if hail was to pelt.

I’ll be forever in your debt

if you allow me to get wet.

I’m pulling on my chain.

You don’t need half a brain

to know I’m ready to go free.

See what a great pet I can be.

NOUNOUS–THE IMPATIENT MALTESE

My favorite picture of my Maltese, Nounous.
He is waiting for my daughter
to come home from New York City.
The train whistles.
He searches for the train.
He waits impatiently by the car window.
The train pulls into the station. 
The doors pass by, one by one.
They are moving too fast for him 
to see his beloved friend.
The train stops.
The doors open.
He sees her.
He howls, 
pawing at the window.
He is still not sure.
He’s waiting for her to walk closer.
She stops beside the car window 
and shouts,”Nounous I’m home.”
He jumps up and down, 
woofing with joy.
She is home. 

 

WHAT’S NOT TO LOVE

WHAT’S NOT TO LOVE

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I can’t describe–or even put into words–how much I love animals.
Their hearts are pure.
They are like babies, always trusting and forgiving.
They never put themselves first.
They love everyone who loves them.
And that’s how it should be.

My new love is my Maltese, Nounous.

 

He is my champion and my best friend.
