Now, went to a poetry workshop yesterday at the Monterey library with Patrice Vecchione. And we wrote. was going to write about  cici but a poem about patrick came with tears…

here it is:

People came one by one.

From home.

At office.

Desks askew with papers.

Sitting on their patios.

Coffee klatsches laughing.

Brewing tea and coffee.

From Starbucks and libraries.

Random acts of kindness.

Borders book stores.

computers clacking.

on their patios.

Gardens left untended.

Food left on stoves.

While watching Oprah.

Dogs barking.

Children playing.

Cats in litter boxes.

Clouds billowing overhead.

In Iraq, Capt. Mike Nichols cried.


Writing on the Internet.

Storms with teary-eyed raindrops

over Newark, New Jersey.

One puppy blossom barely survived.



Thrown away like trash.

A miracle.

They named him Patrick.

He was found on St. Patty’s Day.

Sparked a worldwide movement.

Pay it forward.

100,000+ rallied in his name.

On Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and blogs.

Hearts watching every detail.

He gained two pounds.

Wagged his tail.

Ate a meal.


Licked his caretakers.

I hug Cici close.

Rub her pink belly.

She smiles, bright and goofy.

Soft fur like feathers.

Patrick, poster child for untold millions.

A blessed pibble.

Never forgotten.


a dog named Patrick
