Beach Dog

Since the moment I held a pencil I've been creating with drawings and words. I believe paintings enlighten and poems entice our audiences.

Each dog that I paint has a unique character of their own and that's what makes them fun. They love to play at the beach, enjoy life, and be happy. It's something we could learn from for our own personal health.

A Happy Dog at the Beach

Beach Dog

Here I sit on the beach

Sand on my tongue

The wind on my face

My ears blown about

I listen to sounds of birds

As they fly by

On the air up high

Waves roll around

On the sand

Making pictures of their own

Seaweed drags back and forth

In traces of mosaic patterns

The sun caresses my skin

It fuels my insides with warmth

Smells emanate from beach food

Hamburgers and hotdogs

My mouth waters

I feel alive

I love the beach.

Thank you Lorna. I'm thankful that my poem brought out for you wonderful memories of your dog. I've always loved going to dog's beach and watching our furry friends tackle the mystery of those relentless waves. It's beyond cute. You take care my friend as well.

This wonderful poem created so many lovely memories in my mind. Our dog loved the beach, he used to bark at the waves because he couldn't catch them (mad as a hatter). There is something so endearing about your painting Mary and you perfectly captured the character of this cheeky little dog. Beautifully written and a joy to read. Take care my friend.
