I’ve shared photos and joys
of the birds and rabbits here

but to my absolute delight
a pod of dolphins just swam by

summersaulting and flipping about
gave them a wave and a shout

dolphins - 1 (1)

had plenty of childhood pets
snake, dog, tortoises, silkworms

left home at nineteen
to wander the world

tricky for nomads to keep pets
as I learnt animals enjoy freedom

to live in the wild
with family and nature

nature my constant companion
in all her wild and mild moods

disenchanted by ownership
I try to live by their example

living off grid in a tiny home
quenched my thirst to roam

d’Verse, companions, Linda
