I took the liberty of letting the eyes do the talking instead of using the word “cute.” It just didn’t seem to fit what the newest member of our 4-footed family must have been through. We found him with splotches of fur missing, he hadn’t eaten in so long he was wobbly, and he had a tattered ear.
Only the woods know their stories, and many never survive. Nothing says love like those eyes, a treasure I value far more than “cute.”
You found me hungry,
looking for human kindness,
instead of contempt.
You circled me in your arms,
seeing my love, not the scars.
