I wrote this some time after I got my beautiful dog Zoey as it feels like she symbolises the unconditional love I have always been seeking within and without.
Branches silhouetted like witches fingers
puppeted by the roaring wind
Dead leaves quiver like spiders
shadowed by their search, nearing the end.
I gaze up into the velvet sky
where stars glitter like diamonds
matching the tears falling from my eyes;
cosmic energy, pulsating life.
I shut my eyes to find
beauty and blackness filling my soul
starlight radiating through my heart
reminding me I am home.
A fluffy ball of white
brushes past my leg
and barks her love
into the night.
Life in one name: Zoey.
The search is over.
