When you finally realize he’s gone,
How he pad so benignly on your awareness
Something pulls at your soul –
     A memory of other time
        Of other life
             Life so simple     so undemanding
So loving
And of that consistent joy
Only a purloined whisper lingers.

Mr. Penny died November 4th, 2013

My pet, my Cavy, died tonight,
Crippled but beautiful,
He was my delight.

Arnie, my pretty one,
Legs so weak he could never run,
Neck muscle to weak to hold up his head,
And now he is dead.

Shiny, tri-colored coat,
He loved to munch on his rolled oats,
Voice that spoke so I understood,
Gentle he was, and oh, so good.

My Arnie, my pet, died tonight.

Kola Tears (Death Of A Pet)

Her face with liquid eyes of brown,
trusting upon my arm lies down.
My fingers gently stroke velvet ears.
She looks at me and shows no fear.
I place a kiss between her eyes,
she licks my face one last time.

As her eyes slowly close,
rhythm of breathing starts to slow.
Stethoscope placed against her heart.
Those words "She's gone now" miles apart.
My tears flow strong, free, unchecked.
It's a decision I'm still not over yet.

 For A Rambling Poets contest
What's my theme....Death of a pet
Placement: 2nd place

My Pet Bird

My pet bird,
light brown with
scattered speckles,
perched on the edge
of the cat furniture
and observed
the autumn leaves,
light brown with
scattered speckles,
floating by.

My pet bird,
its speckled feathers
scattered around
the living room,
looked at me
with opaque glass eyes,
their once-intent focus
scattered into oblivion,
and asked me "Why?"

the euthanized pet

               a sanitized death 
      no blood guts pain even sweat 
            that’s life said the vet
       shaking his head with regret
   poor dog wagged his tail ~ we wept

David Kavanagh 

Reflecting on our 
old dog Casper 
was euthanized 
and died in 2013
