When I'm down
they're always looking up at me
with those kind, probing, button eyes
placating the storm between mine
sometimes they even smile
if I'm lucky, I catch them
looking up like that
I know I'm loved
no matter what.
Prompt inspiration: Poetry Jam (Always Looking Up, Michael J. Fox)
The unconditional love of dogs is wonderful!
This is so lovely...they do love unconditionally.
Thanks for the sharing this ~
A sweet and novel approach to the prompt this week. So true.
Very nice! As a dog lover as well, I understand the joy of dogs looking up at me with great fondness.
i remember that looking up i got when my guy was around. great choice and execution for the topic.
I so love thopse doggy smiles. Luckily, my life is full of them. Loved this poem.
I think they like the limelight...
they are so beautiful, what faces :)
Very adorable! nothing like a dog for cheering up.
They're so cute - and I love your tribute to them :)
Perfect! Looking up from their eyes -- and a good picture too! -- they obviously worship you. Hugely creative slant on this weeks theme.
Dogs are so great. Cats sometimes look up, but only from the empty foodbowl
Lovely poem. Having pets is always a great blues buster. Nice write.
