Wallowing in a muddy puddle
naked feet jump in gay abandon
squishy, squashy soggy mess,
happy souls prance together
the tiny tail wags in delight
to the sweet sounds of giggles.
My pup, my perfect partner in crime.
Stealthily we enter home,
staining the carpeted floor with tiny footprints of brown.
The silence of the evening shattered
by mom’s scream of disgust,
watching us plastered in an earthy pack,
she fires her volley of angry outbursts.
We stand in mute innocence
my pup, my perfect partner in crime!
Dakshali’s picture prompt plate #3
Bubbly baby’s progress defines
growing up milestones
painted in playful contours
in a blissful innocent world.
Teenage years chart a new course
mark the many firsts…a date, a kiss
romantic crush or rebellious streak
friends and ambition play a pivotal role
zeal to accomplish inks the milestones.
With a step into the professional world,
life ebbs into a comfort zone
many settle to the society’s norms
honor the events that unfold in due course
targets at work and family goals, outline the milestones.
Fading twilight waits for the ebony sky
to move on, into a destination unknown.
A glance into life’s rear view mirror reflects
celebration of life with its many milestones.
The heart whispers a thanksgiving prayer!
