Seeing Eye Dog

Blind

In a darkened world

Unable to see anything

Helpless

.

A nudging shape

Warm

Soft fur

Pushing

.

Following the push

Curling the hand

In the warm fur

Feeling the soft heartbeat

Badum badumm

.

A swishing

Hitting the back of legs

The legs moving

Over slippery stones

Towards a warmer place

.

Opening the eyes

To a warm place

The sound of people

Saying, “Here she is”

Clapping

Holding onto the fur

Walking on the soft dirt

Over patches of scratchy grass

Towards the crowd

Which you can see

Through the dog’s eyes
