Serendoggity -- Poetry 2011



Second time an angel
came into his life…
happenstance sharing after
meditation group;
Mention of meditating moonlight walks
broken by doggie offering reality check…
mine Corgis – hers Chihuahuas
Mention of a broken promise years ago
to my comatose son – if you decide
to live, I promise to get a Chihuahua…
Here begins the seredoggity:
We rescue them; we have black and tan
Angel to place in a home;
John’s eyes light up exactly as when
Mercury appeared fifteen years ago…
One soul slowly departing;
another soul may fill the void.
Sorrow and joy intertwined- part of
endless beginning and endings.
