My Valenfloof

“I know you,” he said with a lick to my hand.

“Perhaps not from here, but from another time and land.”

“Yes, I know you, too,” I said to the little whiskered face.

“I’m glad we found each other once after coming to this place.”

So we’re privileged to witness, once more,

the transcendent love between a paw person,

and the human they adore.

  1. I haven’t told any of my blogger friends but Raven passed away on Friday. I am heartbroken and floofless, and this made me cry even more. She was 14 and the sweetest little girl you’d ever meet. Thanks for this beautiful poem.


    1. I feel it, my friend. Always difficult to lose one we trust and love, especially one who feels our needs, knows our moods, and doesn’t judge us. I hope my effort gives you some solace as you celebrate her times with you.
