Prompt 172: Miss (Long for)


A dog in street, my pet,

Returning after a few days from tour,
I see him in a corner,
Low & depressed.
He runs towards me,
His joy displayed,  

Making me feel wanted.
Just loving and wanted to be loved.

He does it by waggling his tail.

I too like him
Missed my loved ones & their love,
Feeling low & depressed.  

But I couldn’t waggle my tail.
Suffering silently….  

What stopped me?


But no more.

I now know,
To waggle tail
is to surrender
to HIM.

  1. Happy Sunday all.
    It's been a while since I've been here...Blogger does not always display your site.
    I'll be around to visit the other entries later.

    Beautiful sentiments Harshad.
    Thank you for this week's prompt.

  2. I love this - realizing the connection: our dog's unconditional love for us, and we, their masters, are all they wish to please; the only way for us to give our master is to surrender to Him/Her with our unconditional love, just as our dogs do for us: Thy will, not mine. Lovely poem.
