My Friend

Fay Slimm.




My Friend.
bundle of heaven-made cuddly innocence,
my morning ray of waiting ritual,
that looked-for gift of anticipatory smiles
as I open my night-weighted eyes,
docile bone-loving mistress of patience
have grown yourself into my days.
bouquet of warm canine greeting,
my favoured scent of available sweetness,
model of intelligent compatibility
dressing each rising in mutual attraction.
perfecter of dumb communication
make my aloneness so touchingly grateful.
Tessa my friend
by craft of affectionate silence
your dog-sense adds spicy laughter to life.

      Fur wrapped luverlyness .... you can beat an egg, but ya can't beat a dog now can ya ....................................... x

      • Fay Slimm.

        Oh luverly indeed is her coat of black fur Nev. - - my little princess gives me so many laughs - who could ask for more..............x

      • dusk arising

        Gorgeous looking lil dawg you have there (what breed is she?).

        From your words today one might get the impression you two are quite attached..... but isn't it marvellous how a dawg can co-exist quite contented with us and obviously really enjoy our company and vice-versa. Yep, I love 'em.

        • Fay Slimm.

          Tess is a bit of mixture with yorkie being the main benefactor but pug coming in with her lips - - - they pout and draw men's attention like no other dog I have owned. Glad you love em too dear Dusk.

        • Coyote

          Ah Fay, the only thing better than a good dog is two good dogs. Wonderfully penned my friend.

          • Fay Slimm.

            Agree entirely dear Coyote - - have always had two at a time except for this latest and as yet have declined to get another as am so in love with Tess and her almost human personality - - your visit and comment on My Friend are much appreciated.

          • Goldfinch60

            Wonderful words about man's/woman's best friend.

            A fine write Fay. I say the same of Fido, though he does not exist! He is not friendly when poets do not mark poems 18+ though. lol.
            How could anyone not like her?!
            So much animal cruelty in the world. Yet so much - more we hope - animal kindness.

            • Fay Slimm.

              Yes little Tessa is a gem - thank you so much for your visit and comment dear Orchi

              • orchidee

                Yes, Fido is not what he seems. He barks ferociously if poets should mark poems 18+, but do not do so! lol.
