Storm Dog

The dog knows the storms are close
long before we do,
pacing through her own private
terror, a search for escape
where none exists,
convinced the tumult outside
is in the room with her.

She never learns to control
her fear,
but we always know when
a storm is coming.

    Love the title. Animals are so perceptive

  5. Our little dog was terribly afraid of storms, and it was almost a blessing when her hearing went, and she could no longer hear the storms. Sure do miss her.
    Excellent poem, Mark!
    Here’s my entry:

Some of what I write is true, some is fiction; most is merely possibility.
