Jake is a old dog who has tolerated me in his life for thirteen plus years. We speak regularly much to my benefit but I wonder what benison he receives in these discussions?

Conversations With A Sage



We sit and talk

Jake and I

Conversing in 

Nuzzles posturing

Licks and such

At least for him

I am much less


Forced to limited

Use of words

Back pats rubs

ear scratches 

Jake is tolerant

Knowing full well

He has the more

Expressive tools

Especially when

The topics are 

Love care tomorrow 

And solutions thereto

A harmony of spirit, if not souls. Some debate that point.

A lovely, thoughtful poem.
