God and the Greyhound

May 3, 2013

It was a trying day.

I sat down to decompress

And thoughts swirled about me

Like a tornado

On a path to destruction.

I couldn’t escape them.

Suddenly,

There you were.

Your loving nudge went unnoticed,

At first,

Then you reached out again

With a loving touch

That kissed my very soul within me.

Distracted,

My focus on you was divided at first,

But again you reached out to me

And you were both gentle and strong.

The tornado of emotion passed me by.

There were no words,

Nor any sound at all between us,

But your touch restored me

And I met yours with my own,

Reminded of God’s love

By the affection of a greyhound . . .

I wonder,

Why can’t a servant of God

Run on four legs?

Today, one did.

A visit with my friend Kim’s dog inspired this poem.  Pictured here are both her dog and my friend Mary’s dog.  Retired greyhounds make wonderful family pets.  For more information on adopting a greyhound, visit this site:  http://www.adoptcharlestongreys.org/
