A Relaxing Day

The mongrel sits beside me

taking in the beauty of life

projecting a prodigious amount of strength

having begun with strife

Jumping into the river

splashing around in the sun

with a seminal bark

inviting me to join in the fun

Taking the plunge

the water is cold

grabbing at the ripples

it never gets old

Splashing around

taking a brief swim

the coldness envelops me

numbing my lower limbs

Climbing up the rocks

the sun warms my soul

relaxing in the moment

thinking of taking a stroll

So peaceful

at the water’s edge

sounds of wildlife

speaking to me on this ledge

Getting up to leave

the mongrel leads the way

our souls are at peace

on this beautiful day
