And your bed isn’t
Always of roses;
But even life is human.
It takes pity,
Softens the blows,
Lets you draw solace
From a bed of sand.

When the general landscape of my life appears gloomy, Poemhunter always gives me something to feel happy about. Today when I opened this site, I found myself among its ‘popular members.’ See this pic clicked today, 14 July 2019.
This puppy is super lucky.
Unlike many other street puppies in his neighborhood, he is his mother’s only child. His chubby, innocent face add to his natural charm, so he gets undiluted love and undivided attention from not just his own mother, but everyone else around him.
And the best part is that he has a Godmother who assists his Mom in ensuring that he stays out of trouble.
While I clicked their pics, the Godmother looked at me curiously, unsure of what I was up to, and she remained close to the little one.
Well, that only demonstrates that love is universal and comes in all kinds of shapes and sizes. It has no limits. It flows spontaneously and gushes forth like a waterfall…

These street dogs have found a way out. With the trees gone, they sleep, dream, and ponder in the shade of a concrete wall…
Yes, even a stray dog can live in style…
Life exists on earth in different shapes and forms. Each one of us is a child of God and has every right to live in peace.
1. An emergency meeting took place last week.
Agenda: Demonetization, pollution, and population control.
2. Meeting ended with no quick solutions in sight. The participants walked away in disgust, feeling very disappointed.
3. Going, going, gone…
Just in case this pic shocks you, remind yourself that stray dogs, unlike humans, simply follow their natural instincts…
