It feels as if there is a higher force at play from way beyond the stars. When a physical journey brings rescue dogs to their new home their inner journey is just beginning.
Eivor knew straight away. ‘I have come home and I am here to stay’. Going out for the first time was frightening for him. His previous world had been so small. The soothing sounds of a flute helped to calm his nerves. He now looks forward to every new adventure. Pearl was too frightened to go into friends’ houses on our travels and seemed worried that we would leave her there. When she heard the song ‘In The Light of Love’ for the first time she flung her front paws around my neck and gave me a big hug. We both knew in that moment that we would be just fine. That we are meant to travel this journey side by side.
in the light of love
moon journeys through the sky
every day dazzles

Mish at dVerse Poets has invited us to choose one line from a favourite song and grow our own poem from it. I chose the line ‘In the light of love’ from the song ‘In the light of love/om shree dhanvantre namaha’ by Deva Primal, Miten and Manose. Below is a video clip for you to enjoy:
With love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx
