Unconditional Love

The prompt over at dVerse Poets Pub today is to write a poem inspired by the art of Danny Gregory. I picked one of Danny’s sketches that appealed to me because it was of dogs. I love dogs!

Unconditional Love

Love abounds
It can be found
most anywhere you look

But unconditional love
is hard to find
except in the Good Book

and in the wag of a dog’s tail
no matter now long
your quick trip to the store took

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.

  1. Oh I didnt see this sketch of dogs. It is wonderful. I chose another – because it was a dog – and wrote about their devotion as well. So of course I REALLY love this poem!

  2. Great poem, Linda! Unconditional love, whatever the form, is a great thing to have in one’s life.
    One of the most amusing quotes that I have ever read on Facebook was something like: “If you have teenagers, get a dog. At least someone will be happy to see you”.

  3. You are right on both counts, Linda….wonderful sketch choice, and yes I agree that dogs definitely unconditionally love…..they are always glad to see their master and show it with the excited tail wags..
