Up in the air

The dishes flew into the air

Ringing like bells

As the small white dog leaped onto the table.


Nothing broke!

Black eyes blinked at me as her tail drooped,

I scooped her up into my arms

And took her to safety.


We all have days when we leap before we look,

Days when everything seems to be up in the air…

Be gentle with yourself and others,

Love never breaks

Even if dishes do.
