Dog Knows First

May 23, 2006

He leaps
from the couch
and growls at the sky.

Then looks back at me –
to say goodbye.

Soon come the winds
straight from hell
all we can do
is bark and yell.

The Earth is an ember
our spirits release,

another failed planet
another failed peace.

    I love the idea of a dog who knows when the storm of war is coming.

    my Airedale,Buddy,is intimidated by thunderstorms. He perceives them coming long before I am even faintly aware of their approach.
