Boundary lessons from a puppy.

I spent the day putting up fencing,

To keep those I love safe inside,

Not to keep those I love out.

And then She comes along and leaps thru the barrier,

As easily as She leapt into my heart.

What does it mean to be safe?

I dunno,

I think it might have something to do with having an open heart,

And mending fences,

And minding the gates of the garden.
