Shadow Shot Sunday...Companion...

Welcome to Shadow Shot Sunday, Sunday in Australia you know. For those who adore a musical backdrop, due to blogger complications, you must click on my playlist pop-out and it will direct you to my music, then minimize to hear the works of masters as you surf through the shadows of friends all over the globe through Hey Harriet's meme.
A vision of ornery, my sweet heathen Scratchy...my bud!
In shadow
a wee hope awaits
companion
spirit generating
love
trust
duty
faith immeasurable
complex emotion
binding heartstrings
scheming innocence
love without guilt
testing my stride
wrangling my mental discord
seeking your path
to contrary ends
our pack of two
a ram'bling course of constants
I will always come home to you
you will always be there for me
companions.

I love your poem and doggie pix today! What a joy to be part of a "pack of two." I also have a pupster and I know that I will always come home to her and she will always be waiting for me, happy I'm finally home (whether I've only been gone a few minutes or for hours.) Happy SSS.

O I love this! Scratchy looks so much an inquisitive, knowing character in this shot!

And your poem is such a delightful tribute to the little dynamo.

What sweet discord you seem to make together!

Strange how I included my beautiful companion in my shadow shot this week too!

S-I've not been on line in so long! lots going on here. Your pics, poems and all are just what I needed to perk me up. It looks as if the lost continent is finding spring!

PJ said...

Scrtachy? What a sweetie! Your poem speaks yards about how I feel about my dog and my two kitties. If Ranger dog didn't make such a mess in my van I would take him everywhere!

Hot Fudge said...

So much rings true in your beautiful poem. And this photograph of your sweetie is endearing. It has full "aaahhhness."

Hey Harriet said...

Awww...how adorable! Just look at that sweet little face. Lovely shot! The poem is beautiful. I just read it to my Sophie and she also thinks it's beautiful. Sophie wants me to read it a again and is now telling me that a perfect way to compliment the poem is to give her a doggy treat to enjoy along with the poetry recital. Ooooh she's sneaky!

Utah Grammie said...

Oh that face! Melts my heart - I just know he's an angel...well, in the highest sense of the word..maybe not on a daily basis :-)
