                       Easter Day 2012

                               stretched out

full length

upon the pavers

breathing her

relaxed kelpie

breathing, content

to live with

the doggy mysteries

of door and window;

dreaming perhaps

of the world

beyond the gate

she’s visited

often enough

to yearn for more

but lies so far

beyond her doggy

reach – unless

the Daddy

lift the latch
