Brave Barking Dog

May 17, 2013

The barking woke her with a start
To a smoke filled room she must depart
She knew that barking saved her life
That awful, fateful night.

Through the flames she did race
Flying down the stairs with saving grace
Outside on the lawn, there she realized
The barking was still held captive there inside.

She flung herself at the door
To go back in and save
The barking not outside
But flames leapt out burnt her bad.

Then terror was in her eyes
As the barking ceased to be
She sobbed, she wept, she cried
Knowing, the barking just had died.

The barking saved her life that day
This she knows as she stares
At the scars of that frightening night
When the barking saved her soul
In a awful, awful frightening night.

Rest in peace dear brave, barking dog
You gave your life to save her life and
It will be remembered throughout all life
That brave, courageous barking dog
Who saved her life.

Wind Blowing All Around

April 17, 2012







Wind blowing all around
Trees falling
Falling to the ground
Crashing, smashing all around
Terror where to hide
Terror, terror must decide.

Smashing, crashing
Wind howling all around
Hide in cover, don’t peek out
Be it known
Destruction all about
Wind blowing all around
Smashing hearts
To the ground.

Smashing, crashing
Bringing down
All that’s mighty
To the ground.
