My Example poem

Puppy Dreams     (Trochetta)

Dogs do dream I have a notion-
dreams of pleasant things.
Mine can't dream about the ocean
nor the pomp of kings.

Ocean's spray he's not discovered,
royalty's abstract!
Grizzy burrows under covers
firm against my back.

Twitches might mean he is running
after his green ball;
Maybe he's supine and sunning
waiting for my call.
