simple verse from a simple man


They’ve put their past behind them, 

The chasing and the fights; 

Found common ground between them, 

And stopped the barks and bites. 

Gazing out the window, 

They watch the world go by; 

And contemplate their nature 

As rain falls from the sky. 

I wonder what they’re thinking, 

The could the would and should? 

I always think their thinking 

Exceeds what’s understood. 

A journey all are sharing, 

This travel through our time; 

Be dog or cat or willow, 

These scenes I find sublime.
