In A Pool of Sunshine

After snoozing
in a pool of sunshine,
she sprints
across the furniture
banking off couch cushions,
chair pillows,
and the ottoman.

Solar-powered dog.

    1. Thanks, Jama! She mostly makes me smile except when I'm sitting on the couch when she gets her burst of energy. LOL! =)

  3. Bridget, your poem brings a picture of the solar-powered dog (wonderful!)to mind immediately. I love the way the structure of the poem evokes the bouncing off cushions and furniture.

  4. Awesome! I guessed your super-powered subject was a child, until the last line. My dog is like Tabatha's cats -- a pool of sun is an open invitation to naptime.

    1. We've actually been cold here in Tucson. I think she does her "rounds" on the furniture to warm up. Thanks for commenting. =)

  6. You had me at "pool of sunshine" and "solar-powered dog." My friend's pomeranian, Bingo, is a ball of energy herself, especially when she sees me pick up the mailbox key. Dogs are adorable, aren't they? Thank you for sharing this. Made me smile. Big. =)

  7. How delightful! I was guessing the subject too (every once and a while we'll have a cat go bonkers)... wasn't sure til that last, perfect line! :0) Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thank you, Robyn! Yes, our Smidgey goes "bonkers" on a regular basis - but more so in the cold weather when she wants to warm up. Thanks for reading my poem. =)
