Between
Planting the Three Sisters

CopperDog

We released you Copper Dog
To join with the interbeings
Giving your one-eyed wisdom
Like a salty-dog pirate
To your crew of raccoons and opossums
And the rag tag kittens of pets past

You released us Copper Dog
And embraced the great unknown
To clear it for us of anything
That would run at the Great Bark
Sounded across the vastness
Echoing forever in our hearts

You were loved Copper Dog
With the fluffy hair and floppy ears
Always generous with a welcome home
Always stingy with a meaty bone
Never quiet with a stranger
Never shy with a friend

We were loved by Copper Dog
And changed by knowing him
Learning to smell the breeze
For what is coming next
And to search for the smallest opening
To chase after joy
