Under the stars of winter
Watched over by trees of the night,
Few would ever see her,
As she snuggled down under the light.
Wrapped in the coolness of evening
A glow shining above her head,
Gentle, relaxed in her breathing,
She lays in a snow laden bed.
This ice maiden deeply sleeping,
No torturous dreams to bear,
Safe in the Spiritual Keeping
Of warm arms that truly care.
By morning the snow may have vanished,
Her soul takes its place high above,
Life as she knew it replenished,
She is now a star filled with love.
I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes!
In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too.
On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts.
From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives.
We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
A lovely poem, Di.
