The Glaring Adventure

small dog

Wonderful morning walk

talking to neighbors as I go

stopped to get water for a friend

who had mud on their toes

 

The water was in the refrigerator

as I walked into the house

reaching for the door

quiet as a mouse

 

Then there was barking

and the growling began

I jumped on the counter

looking for a safe place to land

 

The small dog came around the corner

with a glare in her eyes

scuffing her feet

I thought of my demise

 

She studied me

high on the sink

then scuffed offย 

before I could think

 

Running out of the house

with water bottles in hand

my friends laughing

as I reached safe land
