Hail the Husband 3


He plays with her and pets her all hours of the day

talking and teasing Opal – she listens to him say

that he’s glad she’s here – wouldn’t have it any other way

and I’m happy to spot them like this through the archway

Opal of my Eye


Lessons from my dog:

Find a quiet, sunny place to sit and just enjoy!

Jump and run even if you’re so sore afterward that you can hardly walk.

Eat with gusto and no regrets.

Forgive quickly and stay faithful.

Always go for walks and smell flowers along the way.

Naps = good; stress = what’s stress?
