Oh how high he jumped Into the sky Excited and free He felt like he could fly Wherever you go I will follow you, he said with a sigh She fluttered momentarily The dog and the butterfly
Up and over, in and out Making him dizzy of his eyes She teased him relentlessly He wasn’t such a tough guy A symbiotic relationship He did run and was spry She could hover out of reach The dog and the butterfly
They would chase each other Her love he did vie She was lost without him And he knew why Happy together They would never say goodbye Opposites attract The dog and the butterfly
Nice pictures. I have posted a contest of Dog’s pics, do check it out and participate.
Thank you! I will 🙂
It’s my pleasure
It will be my honour!!
Thank you for sharing it!
Wonderful homage to the Heart song, one of my favorites and you have reflected the spirit of that well.
Here is an awesome live link 🙂
Thank you so much Lona. I really love this song. I think of it everyday when I walk my dog and she jumps at a butterfly ❤️
For me, the dog and the butterfly, represent two different souls working on a relationship and friendship, overlooking differences, and working on things that make them happy.
Thanks for sharing and wishing you Happy Holidays !
Exactly Grace. Working on it and rejoicing in the differences rather than finding fault.
Happy Holidays to you too!
P.S. My dog always chases butterflies! and her name is Grace 🙂
the dog and the butterfly – what a partnership, friendship and companionship
Thank you Gina 🙂💕
I liked the thought of her hovering out of reach.
Yes, teasing her friend 😊 Thanks Frank
Just looking at the photo accompanying this poem, brought a smile. As did your poem, Christine, picturing the dog jumping about, to capture the elusive butterfly. Nothing more shout summertime, then this poem, as the northern hemisphere is approaching the winter solstice. The darkest day of the year, light-wise..Thank you, for this ray of sunshine.
Oh thank you so much! I’m happy you liked it and it sent you some sunshine 🙂💕😎
Thank you do much 🙂
This is so cute… love the repetition and so happy to read it about this couple of opposites.
Thanks Bjorn! Always sweet to watch a dog trying to catch a butterfly! 🙂
Lovely picture you paint here Christine… I am always done of telling juxtapositions like these. Thanks for the read…
Aww thanks! I just think they are so sweet to watch together. 🙂
Wow…Dog and the Butterfly…Such a nice composition and opposites do attract. The flow is continuous and repetition enhances the beauty of the poem 🙂
Thanks so much! I’m happy you liked it 🙂
Reminds me of our dog, only it was a bird that he chased day after day.
How sweet 🙂❤️
This was endearing Christine, and what a great pic! Dog and butterfly was also a brilliant musical creation by Ann and Nancy of Heart…
Yes Rob! That was my inspiration for this poem. I loved it 🙂
Wonderful and free!
Thanks Jordy. Happy you like it 💕
