“Returning Home” by Tami Boehle-Satterfield

happy-dog

Returning from a long trip,
The man tops the stairs
Burdened with bags.
The tiny, fawn colored dog
Turns circles on the floor.
Turning circles into circles,
Again
And again,
Until she gains enough speed to gracefully set sail
Swiftly
Crossing the carpet.
Like an acrobat,
Ta da
The performer,
Now
Little magician,
Pulls pearly points
From behind her yap
Lightening the man’s load.
