The Dog Bed

Super soft

dusk gray

cozy

velvet pillow

arched & rising

from the floor

thick foam

bolster

to rest a chin

or lay a head

reaching out

to cradle & comfort

old joints

tired bones–

empty again

(c) Mary Harrison, 8-4-12

  1. Tears well up as I return here to re-read this beautiful poem, Mary. I know you love Muffy very much and Betsy and Scott. Thank you so much for sharing your profound warmth and open heart.
