This stunning photograph taken by Younger Daughter simply begged for a poem, and I have tried to avoid making this one a Really Awful Rhyme.
Two companions, in the greatest harmony,
Share a magic moment in their lives,
Seated, both, considering the timeless sea,
Dreaming as each wave the scene contrives.
Though, in fact, of different species they may be –
Canine, one; the other, human child –
Yet can there be found a perfect empathy,
As, with senses by the scene beguiled,
They are seen to open, with a mystic key,
Means whereby all things are reconciled.
Could one find the route to such pure unity;
Read the contemplation in each mind;
Have such co-existence with impunity;
Universal peace one well might find.
