“A Litte Less Drama” was written for dVerse where Kim is asking us to write a quadrille using the word “fret.” If you’d like to join in, click here.
We’ve had an afternoon into evening of thunderstorms so the inspiration came naturally.
A Little Less Drama
Do not fret, little one
as storm clouds transform
afternoon to night.
You lean your furry face
upon me, comfort-seeking
liquid eyes imploring
as thunder resounds,
much needed rain.
Your skeptical eyes ask:
Can rain not descend
with a little less drama?

Lovely poem. Those liquid eyes imploring….. I can see them well.
She’s a sweetheart, even with the thunder. 🙂
I love the look in his eyes. Goes so well with a well written poem.
Thank you. The storms made her nervous, but she felt better by staying close. 🙂
I love this poem. Truly you described your dog well.
Thank you. She’s only been with me since just after Thanksgiving, but I think we have entered the “relaxed” stages and happiness. 🙂
It’s obvious you care about this little darling with the words you used. So glad she has you to turn to for safety <3
She’s an absolute joy. Thank you! 🙂
She looks like it. You are welcome 🙂
I love the storm clouds transforming afternoon to night, Sascha, and the alliteration in ‘torrents tumult’ conveys the sound of a sudden downpour. I enjoy the drama!
Thank you, Kim. I enjoy the drama of a thunderstorm too; Sophie, not so much. 🙂
Eonderful gentle poem!

Beautiful poem, and those eyes……………who could not love that face and want to protect her from all things nasty?
Thank you. She’s been a wonderful companion so far. 🙂

You had me smiling there… lovely eyes to ask such a question.
Thanks, Bjorn. She is a one of a kind, for sure.
It is nice when a poem opens up another entities inner world a bit, to see the storm as the puppy does
Thank you, Lona. Having pups has opened my world up in many significant ways because I pay attention to what they pay attention to, which can be illuminating. 🙂
