Skywatch Friday/The Temporary Dog

(Photo by taken by Kathie May 6, 2008 @ 5:32 p.m. with Nikon D80)

The puff dog raised his cottony head
In skies of azure blue
And barked his vaporous bark to the world
Asking “who?” Asking “who?”
Who stops to look as the clouds float by?
Who see me in the sky?
I’m a temporary dog,
I won’t last long,
Before I bark “Good-bye.”
Will you hear me bark
Will see me float
Away in skies of blue?
Then the wind came along
And he was gone with a song,
The puff dog, ghost dog, Boo!

  1. Congratulations on 31 years of marriage. Most people look at people married a long time and scratch their heads. My wife and I have been married 53 years come the 12th of July.

    I also read your poem and looked at your photograph. Both are very nice.

  2. Nice SWF but much more important is the fact you are married for thirty one years.

  3. 31 years and SWF shot...well done both;)

    Petunia's SWF

  4. Perhaps your dog is chasing Lissa's bunny!

  5. Very nice.
    A charming Sky Watch.
    You`re cute! :)

  9. Nice catch on the dog, and a beautiful poem.
