The Biblical Dog.... poem by Anne Selden Annab

        The Biblical Dog

Place appellations
and things
and moods
and food
in Arabic
named this dog
for centuries...

One puppy
after another
through out time,
his fur blending
into the stone
his brown eyes
the shadows
shade and shelter

One puppy
after another
as human hands
and Arab voices
welcomed him
