A Prince

There in the midst
Of those ashes I see
A flame of humanity
Burning so brightly 
Fuelled by love
There on bended knee
The fireman 
Who risked his
Life to save
A dog and her
Five babies
Is Knighted a Prince
With a grateful lick
So tenderly.  

For:  Joyce Johnson’s contest - Doggy Gratitude
Inspired by the picture

Awarded:  First Place

    Yours was the poem that most picked up on what I was wanting. Your emotions as you looked at the picture. So many wrote from the dog's point of view that I decided to have two winners in each placement. Congratulations. Love, Joyce
