Working Dog: Ode to life in Beirut

First Tuesday Slice of Life during Poetry Month
This poem was inspired on my walk home by a feeling I often have.



I always feel better,
walking down the street,
when I see you headed towards me.
Trusting your sniffer has done its job
as you check out each car,
I proceed knowing my path to be clear.


  1. Wow.
    Now this is something I would never think about walking around where I live. The necessity of a dog is more than just for companionship...
    Thanks for broadening my perspective with your poem today.

  2. Beautiful Beirut...so sad that the bloodshed never seems to end.
