Walking along the messy street
that led to the green
I would halt for a moment
and sit on the bench
that stood beside the canal
to peep at the eyes of the strangers
who passed by
to immerse myself in the nostalgic sentiments
to ponder over how cruel life had been
Only to be awaken by the rattle of the chain
gripped in my hand
My puppy with its warm canine whimpers
and soft howls
would alarm me
while wagging its tail restlessly
I would suddenly recover
from the figment of the wild imagination
that could well jeopardize the whole soul
As my puppy would tickle my toes
with its tiny tender tongue
That soothing feel, that very intimacy
would make me want to start walking again
to the green
Thank you puppy,
for not letting me cease to be!
