Suburban Sentinel – My Weekly Poem 8/1/2022

In the sun I lounge
and wait for breezes
that bring everything
I need to know.

I sound the alert
with mighty shouts
at anything
that peaks my interest.

Then grateful ones
echo the call
until we stop
and return to watchful slumber.

The summer warmth,
the soft green grasses,
the yard is mine,
a dog’s life well lived.
