Dora’s captivating photos inspire poem after poem. i’m grateful…I’ve lost count of how many poems have evolved from her emotional evocations by this stage…

As dogs go Jack’s a darling dote

Luke kindly combs his wiry coat,

brushed hair hovers, haloes float:

slo-mo parachutes, falling motes.

stray hairs end up everywhere,

fluff sentries line all steps of stair,

hatch-marks added to all armchairs:

generously giving, plenty spare.

his friendly face so foxy hued,

rich ginger pointy ears protrude,

his body Reynard-hint imbued:

canine mammal though, not a pseud.

long after his presence has passed,

hair hints will linger, thick and fast,

filament fellowship merrily amassed:

found fluff-cotton into odd corners cast…
