She Cuddled Up

Cuddled up in between two blankets,

sat a beautiful ‘set’ of newborn puppies

Inside the crate was a blended “mess” of last night’s birth

She cried

She whelped

But never wanted to leave them

They snuggled,

right back to her

and considered her Mother Earth

She waited for her lover’s return

But he lay…

outside for 5 hours

Her pain was soon vanished,

as she saw

the reminder of her offspring.
