Poetry Jam...Throw-A-Way Dogs and Roses

Connecting to Poetry Jam this week.  I was nine hours late last week but wrote a poem anyway.  I do not claim to be a poet but hey, gotta give it a try.  For those who know me, I didn't murder anyone this week.

Love is the subject.  What is our passion is the question.  The answer is competely up to us.
I LOVE
Throw-away-dogs
Drinking from my water garden
At daybreak
Their eyes showing
With uncertainy
 Removed and forgotten
 They are finally home.
Pink roses
In the dark
 Holding fragrant memories
That tickle your nose
And take you back
To Grandma.

Oh my glory...I had to go back and begin again!

I'm thinkin'...Gail's drinkin' from her water garden at daybreak??? Yep...it's been a l-o-n-g day!

Oh, I am so glad for the dogs that you have given them a home. Dogs should never be 'throwaway.'

Aw, these both brought tears to my eyes! I'm a sentimental old broad! Very nice poems! I liked them!

I love what you chose to write about... so sweet!

I enjoyed both of these, but I only related to one...

Can you guess which?

(I will never be a dog owner, but I love that you do what you do.)

Aww, such sweet poems! Hard to find anything that tugs at the heartstrings more than puppies and grandmas. Thanks so much for sharing this with us over at Poetry Jam!
