Ode to Puppies

By: Amrita Lal


Take it in; that luscious new smell.

Just one touch and you suddenly feel secure.

Their warmth spreads like an epidemic.

You wrap your arms around for comfort

clutching your best friend like you

grab your phone after a long day.

Oh the things you do for your

new intriguing partner;

Dressing them up like a Christmas tree

and giving them treats as good as

homemade ice cream.

Their eyes

innocent and harmless

they illuminate like stars in the night sky

It brightens your day coming home to

a puppy wagging his tail.

When it snows they leave tiny imprints

on the ground

so tiny and precious

that imprint will soon melt away

but will stay with you all the way.
