Opportunity Clothed In Fur

My friend, she came to stay with me awhile
She had a dog with nowhere else to go
One so full of energy to spare
But I like dogs and couldn’t say no
First he took the bag right from my tea
Soon he ate a gift a child had made for me
One pillow shred to pieces on the floor
So much fun was that he looked for more
Now with one less sheet upon the bed
I just close my eyes and shake my head
My friend insists in paying me my due
At this rate all old things could become new

I am a wife and a mother of two grown children. I love Jesus and sharing my faith through written words. I currently have a poetry blog and also write on medium.com. My main focus is hope in Christ. I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused.

    This made me laugh. Before grandchildren we had a grand puppy – very much as you’ve described.
