By Rebecca Forrest (PawPrintsLife)

Millennia of pounding feet
a sound replete
with rush of breath
and throbbing beat.

The bounding flight
beguiles the sight
of bolting prey—
first left, then right.

Around the bend
past the fence
gaining on
the flashing fur.

The quest evades
and slips from sight.
The coursing fades.
Then—hound’s delight—
a new command.

The heart complies—
smooth backyard spanned—
to alpha’s eyes
and loving hand.

For more of my writing, I hope you'll visit Thanks!
