Asher Blake’s The Emanation

Standard

This poem was written for my champion dear dog, Sunny Freckles.  She is an Aussie/Catahoula mix, and very beautiful and smart. I suppose this poem is written on the theme of trusting the beautiful and smart.

The Emanation

I feared her heart was the type
to snarl and strike,
and so raised up her lip,
but she was fanged
with milk horns.
Whereupon, as live snail
quick in the grace of animal
love leap upon their brides,
her tongue in grateful emanation
darted me a lick, and swung away
contented, departing to the cool tents
of unicorn stripe and nursing brides.
