Saturday Comfort

Stretched out on the couch

two caramel-colored pups

offer a model for the way to be.

One lies upside down,

paws in the air,

head thrown back —

she has not a care.

Her brother,

long and lean

hugs the curve of my leg,

gentle breaths

in and out,

in and out.

He is warm and settled.

If only Saturday

could last a week!
