06:29 am - The Great Dog
In honor of the Dog of the House and last evening's thunderstorm, a drabble:

The Great Dog chases the Fire-Lizards through the storm.

They are leaping twisting striking things, the Fire-Lizards, which dance down and then disappear into black rain. Their sounds are strikes, too, and the world shakes.

But the Great Dog protects the world. She talks to the Fire-Lizards, growl and chuckle, threat and complaint, and her paws sink into cloud as she runs. The leaping twisting striking thing, so close...
..................................

The human looks away from her book. The dog of the house, deep in dream and lamplight, lies at her feet. She wonders where the dog is going.


May all of you be traveling well in dreams!

Thank you, F!

The dog-dreaming was v.v.v. pronounced last night. ;-)

Happy Friday!

I love your drabbles, and this one is delightful. I think they need a nicer name than "drabble", because they are neither drab nor dribbly. Pocket tale, perhaps?

"Pocket tale" is a much, much nicer name! :-)

Thank you, A, and hugs and good cheer for your weekend, too.

I also love this.

I'm trying to type around cat dreams at this this very moment.

Cat dreams must be an interesting thing ("puppy-mares," as my parents always called dog dreams, can be extremely dramatic). :-)

Thank you thank you, S, and hugs and a happy Friday evening!
