Old Dog

2017-04-18 20.56.58 (2)

Old dog sleeps on the grass,
paws twitching after dream prey.
His joints have gone stiff.

Old dog sleeps on the patio,
black fur soaking up the sun.
His chin has gone gray.

Old dog sleeps on the rug,
tail thumping at our voices.
His eyes have gone cloudy.

Old dog sleeps on the sofa,
head resting on my knee.
His heart stays true.
