...once a week poetry treat for the young and the young at heart...
Sweet! My cats never have that reaction to sleeping in the sun...
This one made me smile. Love solar-powered dog!!!
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.
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.
Terrific poem, Bridget. I love the image of a solar-powered dog. :-)
Thanks, Tabatha! Our dog, Smidgey, is a Rat Terrier who has energy to spare. Thanks for stopping by and commenting. =)
Thanks, Jama! She mostly makes me smile except when I'm sitting on the couch when she gets her burst of energy. LOL! =)
Thank you, Joyce! It's exactly how she does it when she's in the mode - look out! Thanks for stopping by! =)
We've actually been cold here in Tucson. I think she does her "rounds" on the furniture to warm up. Thanks for commenting. =)
Thank you, Carmela! Our dog is quite the character - she the subject of many of my poems. Thanks for your comments. =)
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. =)
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.
Thank YOU for stopping by and commenting. I love my dog, but she's been known to do a number on our furniture. =)
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. =)
So funny! That last line is the perfect punchline. Thanks for sharing this delightful poem!
Ha, so fun & so true!
Just like a little terrier we used to have-brings back good memories. Good last line!
Thank you, Violet! Thanks for stopping by and for hosting Poetry Friday this week. I had fun reading all the poetry...=)
Thanks for stopping by and commenting, Matt! I enjoy my dog and writing poems about her. =)
Thanks, Catherine! I have a "yip-yapping" good time writing poems. (speaking my dog's language). Thanks for commenting. =)
Thanks, Linda for stopping by and commenting. I'm glad to have reminded you of your little terrier. They are fun dogs - with lots of energy! =)
