Oh, dog!

Oh, dog!

You whose name is God,

spelled backwards.

Which is fitting.

God, the great intangible.

Dog, who with nail-click,

familiar stink and scrubby fur

is tangible.

Times two.

***

God is omnipresent

while you, oh dog,

are simply present.

You live in this

roll in the grass.

This plate-lick.

This scratch between the ears.

May we learn

from your example.

***

Oh, dog!

You are not God,

but you exhibit his patience

with us, the impatient,

imperfect, improbable

Humankind.

***

Thank God, we pray.

But thank dog, we live.
