A Poetic Conversation

In Canine Poetry, Shelley Widhalm on May 26, 2013 at 11:30 am

Shelley: I wrote this poem while writing my novel, “The Fire Painter.”

Lost Dog

Broken heart calling
Out to my lost dog
Where are you if not in my house
But in my soul
More room required.

Zoey: I wrote this poem in response to my BFF Shelley’s poem, which is about a dog character based on me. The dog should have been named Zoey, but Shelley calls her Flame.


I am not lost
With you in my heart
Squeezed against your side,
Licking the salt off your hand,
Kissing you,
Loving you,
Not wanting anything but
Being here.
