One Single Impression: River

The river, 

Alive

With the driving energy 

Of a hurricane

And three weeks

Of constant, heavy rain

Called to the little dog

And might have claimed him

Were it not for a young girl

Who turned 

The one syllable of his name

Into a song

Sang it

And ran the other way.

  1. A scary story told. Love the poem. I hope that sweet little dog stays out of the water. A rushing river could take him away.

  17. I like it Sandy! I like dogs too!

    "Called the little dog ... might have saved him ...;" I wonder what one syllable name could have been made into a song that would scare a dog.
    Just wondering. :)
