Sea-Dog

Sea Dog

The sea, like a shaggy dog,

          flops and pounces on the sand

                    leaving a ragged trail.

Sweeps the shore with his tail,

          tickles and licks at my toes.

Nighttime sun burnishes

          mother-of-pearl

               across his shaggy locks,

                            announcing bedtime.

The faithful dog stays on,

          sleeping not,

                    upon the bedded shore.

The text below is informational in nature only, and 
will reappear in many of my pieces, and can be ignored.
 
 
This is extra 'content' added at the end to fill space 
for no better reason than that "Hub Pages" wants to 
take it upon itself to dictate to a writer how long 
their compositions should be.  I have numerous poems
 that are very short, and this piece of fluff-fill 
will appear at the end of each and every one of them.
