No Kisses

birthday Beau

No Kisses for Valentine’s Day (Belated)

No kisses today
I’m sorry to say
I saw you about
with a squirrel in your mouth
a very dead squirrel
you dropped at my feet
a Valentine’s treat

So I must remember
to let time go by
how long does it take for bacteria to die?
Impatiently waiting
anticipating…

No kisses for me
but what do I see?
that nose in the air
so soft and so fair
resolution be naught
I already forgot.

    I had a dog called tosca, she loved chasing squirrels. But only caught one in 12 years. 🙂
    RE: Bacteria. I thought they were immortal !!!
    RE: Kisses. They are like jokes, sometimes you get them and sometimes you don’t !

    Tears, and more tears, … but happy ones.. Wonderful poem and picture in my mind , Monica, and of course I can’t help but ‘see’ my girl, doing the most maddening but laughter making things…. xPenx

    Oh, so lovely to have you here. Happy me. Dear Pen, I know you think about your beautiful girl. There’s only one cure and so many to love. The cure that isn’t really but still feels like one.
