Boy and Dog




Frolicking, scampering, chasing, free as air,

The boy and dog exult in each others company.

Running over the spiky grassed sand dunes,

Careless of thought, enjoying this moment of euphoria,

They tumble to the ground and roll over and over,

Boy laughing, dog barking in glorious empathy.

Out of breath, they sit in warm sociability.

The eyes of the boy mark him out as different,

Disabled, unable to compete with his peers.

The non-judgemental dog gazes devotedly at his master,

An unbreakable bond between Boy and Dog.
