TSM 204 — Sunglowed

Sentenced explosions, smoke, and wailing
finds my spirit drifting away
to the day we walked among
sunflowers. He, ahead,
turned and sat, smiling,
sunglowed, amidst
a world of
balanced
peace.

Today’s offering is in the nonet form.

        I saw cartoon by Red & Howling saying that animals are about love, not war, and this one little dog was saying, “I just want to cuddle, feel safe, and eat cookies.” I can’t stop thinking about it. Pets ought to run the world.

    Beautiful Lisa, excellent. I did a 2nd one focused at war — but with tongue in cheek.

    Our pets really do live outside our human failings. Sometimes pure love is all we need.

        Yes that is part of it. Whenever I see a dog now I do think of her.
