Listen-Speak by Bev Thompson

Listen – Speak
by Bev Thompson

I don’t listen to your words,
I listen to your speak vibrations.
Your imprinted voicebox, your tone,
your facial expressions, your body
language, your eyes.
Don’t turn your eyes away!
Look at me.
I interpret your silences.
I can hear everything you don’t say
with your lips perfectly spoken words.

I Am A Dog

    Terrific! Just replicating the life of my furbaby and me. She is a 5-year old Corgi but she looks like a 60-year old graceful lady while talking to me. I dedicate this poem to all the furbabies around the world.

    Loving someone unconditionally means accepting them with all their imperfections and Dogs are perfect example of it.They are willing to do everything for their owners and no one can understand this better than Dog Owners
