Thunder

It is Thunder’s Birthday! He is two and for a fun blog, I wrote a poem about him when he was a puppy, enjoy then and enjoy the photo of him now! Have a happy Friday!

Thunder

this beautiful nightmare

came covered in all black,

his tawny colored eyes with

a storm of understanding

in world i hadn’t known yet

but he is more patient than i

to teach my nerves

tightly wound in my body

to stay steady in front of the herd

to overcome the obstacle

of oneself in life

not too fast

not too slow

be formidable while awake

the shadow of an avalanche

facing a daunting challenge

set by his steady gaze

his steady heart

his never-ending loyalty to waiver

telling me when i sleep

don’t’ be discouraged by my

lack of forgiveness

one day soon

one step near

one breath closer

i will become the best friend

you need me to be
