I write what I feel…

The Beauty Parlour


Fritz - clean and cut

The Beauty Parlour

After a few months of neglect,
I’m ashamed to say I do concur,
My little knotty ball of fur
Dirty and bedraggled,
Had to visit the beauty parlour.

What a metamorphosis awaited me –
I barely recognised my boy –
Tail feathers wagging in joy,
Bright black eyes exposed,
Red tongue tip, and little button nose.

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx

  1. Lovely – the picture, and how you tell it!

    I imagine there was a lot less dog to be seen after the visit? 🙂


  2. he looks very good now


  3. A fresh little Fritz!


  4. So sweet, Adeeyoyo 🙂


  5. What a cutie he is, Adee – it’s always nice to see them all fresh and sparkly like that. Doesn’t last long, the fresh; the sparkly is always there, I think…


  6. Haha – I know exactly what you mean – I always leave my dogs too long and when they do get a cut they are unrecognizable – very cute little poem and Fritz is adorable 🙂
