Poem #7- Mama Star

Rooney quickly decided that Star, my then twelve-year-old lab, would be his new mama.  She accepted the job, albeit a little begrudgingly.

   

"Mama Star"

Does not look like Mama Uma,
Does not smell like Mama Uma,
A little grumpy,
But she will have to do.
I snuggle close.

"From Star"
(a haiku)

I did not order
this yellow velcro buddy
send him back right now.

I like the duo perspective. At twelve, it must have been hard for Star to have an energetic puppy show up!
