NaPoWriMo Day 17: A Dog Story

that cat in the window
keeps looking over at me
what's up with him
sitting warm indoors
- unlike me

National Poetry Writing Month #NaPoWriMo challenge is to think about dogs I have known, seen, or heard about. 

Leo, the dog next door sits outdoors in his backyard, sometimes looking bored with nothing to do.  He looks over, making eye contact with my cat, Weston, in the window. Weston stares back.  

I often feel sorry for Leo and wonder what he'd like to say to Weston, or me.
