Iditarod Dreams
for Sabrina

Gentle whispers
she hears
the call of the wild
as distant echoes

A snowflake quilt
warms her
and weaves quiet
daydreams

Paws rooted
within Mother earth
snowbound
her playground

Yellowstone geysers
to Malibu white sands
she travels
gently through life

Wisdom
her navigator
peace
her soul

Eyes
inspired

A Knowing

I really like this - Sabrina's eyes do answer to that visionary 'knowing'. Nice!

Poetry so appropriate with that adorable face!

that face expresses a lot of emotions and tells a memorable story, and so does the poem

I like this. As I read it, I imagined it all through the dog's eyes.

That visionary knowing is in her eyes. Nice poem.

wow Joanne...what a won'drous poem for a dog!!!! You have made her sound like a wolf who sometimes turns into a Cherokee princess, daughter of the chief! Alas! That is her true identity, isn't it!??

You fool us all Joanne...you write poetry and take innocent pictures, but the truth is...you cohort with dwarfs and prance around with wolf-princesses!!!!!!!

Sabrina owes you a kiss for this poem, which you can collect on the 29th. You have immortalized her with words that speak for her, and for this we are touched. Thank you, Jo.--G & T
