Guard Dog

A guard dog

barks in the distance

I wonder if he

is in need of assistance.

Is he warning

of pending danger?

Has he spotted

an unwelcome stranger?

Is there a chain

holding him back?

preventing him

from launching an attack.

Or could it be

he doesn’t want to be alone

and is calling out

in search of a new home.

Maybe he is

looking for attention,

for someone to come

and show him affection.

  1. Hecate is the goddess of paths and gates, doggies are sacred to her. Maybe they’ve got something in the works to be unleashed or bracing themselves for?
