MLMM – Ginger

https://mindlovemiserysmenagerie.wordpress.com/2021/02/07/sunday-writing-prompt-ginger-7th-february/

***

The first thing I thought of was our Basset Hound, Ginger. She was with us for many years, and such a character she was.

Her mama dog, Maggie, was an AKC registered Basset Hound, and so was Ginger. When she was born, we were right there with mama and babies. Ginger was the first born, and did have a bit of trouble right from the start. She was blue. I don’t know what happened, but we thought she wouldn’t make it, at first. But then my husband gave her mouth-to-mouth resuscitatation (yes, to a puppy), and she began breathing and turning a beautiful pink. She was alive and fine after that.

Out of the whole litter of puppies, Ginger was the only one with her ginger and white coloring. The rest of the puppies were black, brown, & white.

One of Ginger’s claim to notorious fame was she was a master at stealing food. She once leaped up and grabbed a whole hamburger from a friend’s hand. She also once, raised up to the table and ate half a birthday cake sitting there.

Ginger and her mother, Maggie, loved to escape, too. Whenever they did, they’d trot off down the sidewalk, nose to the ground, ears dragging, and wouldn’t pay attention to us hollering to come back. We’d have to chase them down.

One fun memory was that on every Christmas Eve night, we’d take both of them for a late walk around the neighborhood. We had some big sleigh bells that we’d take along, and shake them, as we went along.

Ginger (and Maggie, too) was such a character, and they are missed.

WE WERE

We were

Blown asunder by Hurricane’s furious wind

We were

Baptized in Faith-shaking Flood water

We were

Sacrificed in Blood and tears

We were

Tested and trialed by Fiery flames of Life

We were

Forged in Love ever stronger

We were

One

Until the End of Days

We were

We were

MY LOST LOVE

I wrote

You a mushy love poem

Down my arm

On display for all to see

I Love You – Be Mine

Thinking you loved me too, but

You laughed

You said nothing to my face

Turned away

I must have read your mind wrong

Now you are gone

I feel like a fool, and lament

My Lost Love
