   God to Dogs


I speak not of cats

for I know not of cats

but as for dogs

for dogs I know.


How, they must wonder,

do I live in heat

when winter winds howl?


How, they must wonder,

does this stuff I must drink

so magically appear

when my bowl no longer

runneth over?


How, 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

must be God.

Only in our minds. Doggies tell time,have uncanny hearing when the fridge door opens(from a hundred yards), manage to plaster your face with sopping wet fur immediately after emptying the drinking bowl with a shit eating grin on their face. They are love. Sweet poem Mark.

THIS. Is. GORGEOUS, Mark! You capture the spirit of Dog -- and of God -- beautifully in thought provoking lines. No wonder they call dog 'man's best friend.' All the canines of the world must be wagging their tails at this. Shoot, if I were a dog, *I* would be. Sooo enjoyed -- well done!

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

My dog Kaiser was in heavens when he could sleep with his head over my right foot. He was a one hundred lean pounds Rex German Shepherd dog, so go figure my foot wasn't in heaven! (LOL) But if wife don't understood you...he did.

How beautiful Mark and I am sure they must wonder, when treated so well. I don't have a dog but I did at one time, however I do have a cat and she will let me know when she wants treats or ice put in her water, she talks a mile a minute and reminds me that it is bedtime. I am not God but I am one of His workers. Great write Mark.

Your Newfie Friend Hugs XOXO, Rose

This poem I enjoyed greatly. I am a Dog, and Cat lover. At the present time I only have 2 cats as pets. A dog would be out of the question because of my broken foot. But I really like this writing.
