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
