Happy National Poetry Month!
Smidgey continues to enjoy the limelight...
...Me? Not so much.
Well, that is not entirely true.
I love making people laugh. (Myself included.)
But sometimes I am self conscious.
These videos are a delight to make. (So much so that I literally LOL during the process.)
And after I finish I am proud...for a minute.
But then I worry.
Does my voice really sound like that?
Am I weird to put this into the world?
Is my poetry good enough to be among *real* poets?
Maybe I should leave it in a draft folder and call it a day...
But then I look at Smidgey's tiny furry face.
Needs to hear her *ahem* voice.
Needs a few minutes of silly dog respite from their worries.
Which brings us to the here and now.
To the POINT of this post... a short and sweet video. (It will prove my point.)
(short + sweet = Smidgey)
Smidgey's Identity Crisis Poetry Series,

Thank you for each and every comment on my blog.
I read them to Smidgey and she gobbles up your kind words like a cheese-filled treat. 🧀
