Sadie, or Dog, Gone

She came to me
from the pet lost

and found; you know
the one, where they

wait to die.
A gift from the ex.

Probably the best
present, not counting

the painful,
expensive divorce.

A spaniel, soft
and fluffy

with amber spots
on a coat of cream.

Melting chocolate eyes,
ever-grinning mouth,

her tail flew
like a banner in the wind.

For eighteen years
she was companion,

friend, unconditional
love-giver, cuddle-buddy,

and stealer of the pillow.
Always there for me.

They’re both gone now;
Sadie, and the ex.

I miss her still.

About This Blog

The name for this blog was inspired by a quote by Nietzsche, below.

"Dancing in all its forms cannot be excluded from the curriculum of all noble education; dancing with the feet, with ideas, with words, and, need I add that one must also be able to dance with the pen?" ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

I plan on this being the start of an incredible journey of discovery and creativity. I invite you to bring your pen, and come dance with me!
