My S-I-L Belinda has an eye for the interesting, the beautiful and the absurd and takes the most wonderful photos.
I love this photo of hers and thought it the perfect match to a poem that I wrote for Gabrielle Bryden’s Close Shaves Week. Thanks, B. :-)
the neighbour’s dog
has a lot
to say in the morning.
I imagine he entertains
the Vox Dogz with tales
of victorious nocturnal stoushes
with the white cat from across the road:
“A face like a chook’s bum
I tell ya rrrrhahahaharuffruff “
But I’ve seen him run
at the sight of her.
(Look, Tilly, no commas! :-) )
