On bended knees. Glowing, poised; relaxed;

Beaming celestial splendour to all directions.

Man and Dog, radiating charisma; reciprocal in their love.

Vibrant, rhythmical, like a planet spinning on its axis,

In tune with equilibrium …

Seeking; replenishing; renewing, their genial energy

Emit a song of invitation. “Come! Come!”

Do you hear the melody of their Spirit?

Together they synch, like the pulsating Iguassu.

Energetic; forceful, a candela of shimmering Light,

Reflecting the timelessness of a serene sunset.

All around, the ferns and foliage radiate their joys;

The enchanting yellow ‘beauties’ seem to celebrate;

The Divine Mother emanates; replenishes their Souls.

      I would expect nothing less from you my friend, you see the beauty in all around you. Tributing Bill along with his dog is the perfect compliment to both.

      Much gratitude, first of all for your loving wishes for me. To be my best year ever, then I'll merge in God, he he:)

      Yes, Bill's a wonderful man and I cannot say this without remembering his almost silent partner behind the scenes, his wife Beverly.

      Thank you for your loving sentiment Purvis. God bless your sincere heart with ever-increasing joy and beauty. Salaam!

      Faith, what a wonderful experience for you in your childhood. I'm glad the dog's your favourite. Mines, too.

      Thanks for your kind contribution, as always, to this Hub.

      Oh, there is nothing more beautiful than the loyalty and love of man's best friend. I have had many wonderful dogs in my lifetime and cats too, but my favorite one from my childhood was my three-legged yellow lab. He was the most special dog ever that a child could ever wish for in this lifetime. He adopted us as his family and I believe God sent him to us right when we needed our sweet Brownie boy.

      Blessings

      Very valid point, bravewarrior.

      I have re-visited the poll on your behalf. My thanks for your loving contribution. In Peace and Light.

      Manatita, this is a wonderful tribute to Bill and his dog. I could not vote in your poll because, although I'm a cat person and find them as loyal as Man's Best Friend, I've also had dogs who have loved me unconditionally as well. I would have voted for both.
