Warm Heart

Warm Heart

The small dogs are still warm from their day’s exertion
curled into balls—one at my feet above the covers,
the other, too small or timid to leap up to the bed,
a tight knot in her cushy denim bed just a yard away.

For the dVerse Poets Quadrille prompt, the subject this week is warmth.

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

      Tonight I’m having Morrie sleep inside. I put down a rug for him near Zoe but instead he was lying on the tile touching her bed.. So sweet. He has since moved over to his fluffy rug. Coco is up on the bed. I’m trying to create situations for Morrie to join us.

          Last time he spent the night with us, he jumped into bed and then Zoe did, too. Coco was already there. That was the night I had such trouble breathing that I decided I might be allergic. I still may be, but they are doing a good job of staying far enough away so I’m having no problem..Coco is in bed but the other two are in their beds beside my bed.

        I recently told David that once Brody has left us, which is hopefully still a long way down the road, I would need a break from dogs for just a little while. He said he doesn’t think I could do it! I just think Brody is so special to me that it will be hard to fill his little paw prints! It would be nice to be able to leave the house and not have anyone to worry about also. Just for a short time.
