National Poetry Month 2022- Poem #26- Recipe for a happy dog


 "Recipe for a happy dog"

Cuddles with Mama,

Kisses from brother,

Romps with a friend.


Hard brushing,

Hole to dig,

Car rides,


A short walk,

A long walk,

The possibility of a walk.


A tennis ball,

A tug of war,

A peanut butter bone.


Takes so little to make him happy.


(C) Carol Wilcox, 2022

Just more dog blessings I adore…Their unconditional love and ability to find joy in simple things constantly awe my heart. Love, love, love your poems, Carol!
