Must Be As God

 I speak not of cats

for I know not of cats

but as for dogs 

for I know of dogs.



they must wonder,

do I live in heat

when winter winds howl?



they must wonder,

does this stuff I must drink

so magically appear

when my bowl no longer

runneth over?



they must wonder,

does this stuff I must eat

so magically appear

when my bowl no longer

runneth over?


How does the darkness

turn to light?

How does the light

turn to darkness?

How do the things

I play with magically appear?

How does my being

swell with love for

the godly giver

of warmth

of water

of food

of light

of love?


In the heart of a dog

the giver of warmth,

of food,

of water,

of light,

of  love,

in the heart of a dog

the giver,

the you and me

must be as God.

I have such sweet memories of my beloved pets, every one having their own brand of love and devotion for me. Unconditional love, always. I miss them so much! Thanks for sharing this. Joy L. Hale

Sweet! Their love for us humans is certainly divine.
My dog is amazingly forgiving of humans, too.
Reviewed by John Martin 7/23/2011
Beautifully said, Mark. A dog is most certainly a gift from God....and a reminder of God's love for us.
