My Iggy

we sit side by side in a state of serenity

my Iggy and me

he, a small version of a greyhound

with brown eyes that are profound

that look into my soul

his presence does console

we spend comfortable hours silently

contemplating many a mystery

my Iggy and me.

The Virtues of a Pug

smushed-faced clowns on four paws that capture your heart

pugs in beige and black, they’re all a special breed apart

some people say that pugs are ugly and snort like pigs

I say no way…those pugs will become like your kids

my little puggie Molly is always looking to play

it’s no stretch to say she can play all day

I’d venture to say that pugs are a popular pet

they’re a great companion and that’s a sure bet!
