under a porch light
as if he always waited
at the wrong threshold

And thank you, too!
Such depth of sadness in these few lines.
This is so apt, but it breaks my heart!
I was writing about a young man, but then found this photo of a dog on a porch and knew it paired with the poem perfectly 🙂

Your title, words, and image are perfect. I love this!
Glad you liked it! Thank you, Eugenia.
Very strong and emotive poem…and yes, forlorn.
The dog looks sad but settled.
Thank you. I’m always sad when I see dogs turned away.
Don’t we all experience this at times! For so many, earth is not a friendly place to inhabit. Great post and photograph – perfectly paired indeed. (btw, thanks for the follow, and reciprocating…!)
Thank you! And thank you for following me, too!
I can’t help it, there’s this crazy side to me that comes up with these things… any relation to e e? 🙂
lol! I wish!
Thanks for liking my posts!
I really enjoy your blog!
Thank you 🙂
