waiting


Here's day five's submission of NaPoWriMo (a poem a day for the month of April in honor of National Poetry Month):








waiting


on the floor
nearby, always nearby
for a word
a gesture
some action.

in the kitchen
alert -
for a crumb
a morsel -
gravity to work

facing out
sniffing the air
through the screen
tasting
drifting scents

by the front door
hopeful

!!!

i stand,
you look up,
we lock gazes
finally in unison,
Now!

in the car
ears flapping
wind in your face
window and
wags

Look of an old dog...do we have an "old dog look" too?
