I’ve been pinged. I admit I didn’t even know what a ping was until I’d been pinged. Apparently a ping is when an author of a blog links back to another blog. Cooh huh?
My very first ping comes from my blogging kindred spirit Mid-Life Luncatic. I hope you all get a chance to check out her blog.
I’ve also been ponged. Okay, I made that up because I wanted a catchy title for this entry. Actually, I gave permission to allow one of my poems to be included in a new book that just came out, Canine Massage in Plain English by Natalie Winter, CMT, JP. Natalie is a full-time canine massage therapist and runs her own clinic in Nowra, NSW Australia. I wrote the poem, A Brilliant Rainbow, in memory of our first greyhound Misty Blue many years ago.
High on whispered wings I fly, a radiant star, I light the sky.
Toward the sun I soar so free, a brilliant rainbow follows me.
I pulsate through your very soul and in my paws your heart I hold.
The day will come when you’ll fly too, I’ll be there then to welcome you.
Until the time we meet again, I won’t journey far my friend.
For in your love I live so free, a brilliant rainbow watching me.

A big thanks to Mid-Life Lunatic and Natalie Winter. This middle-aged maniac appreciates you very much. 🙂
