Puppy Breath


The rise and fall of her chest,
slight snore-whimper of dreaming,
whisker flick fluff-fall of heart.
Caramel curl
-sleepy puppy girl.

One crimped ear, black smudge muzzle;
a nuzzle of cool wet nose.
Fuzzy pause.


Our beloved Poetic Bloomings has relaunched, with a fun form called the Boketto.
Come play!
