Canine Dreamscapes

A soft-eyed smile

On a sleeping jaw

Slow tail wagging

And twitching paw

Old friend, it seems

You see far more

In canine dreams

At twilight.

Bottle a sound

To love and keep

No heavenly host

Could sound so sweet

Than the gentle woof

Of hounds asleep

In the gentle kiss

Of starlight.

Lullaby sigh

And tranquil mind

I watch, and wait,

And hope you find

Whatever treat

Lies undefined

In visions seen

By moonlight.

For all of us

Who watch dogs dream

Who hear the worlds

To us unseen

I share a smile,

A link, between

Our friends who dream

Of sunlight.
