Life is but to please my master
His happiness fills my needs
food in my plate,
pat on my head
There is a better side of life
Walks in the park,
flushing rabbit for the hunt,
seeing my subject little boy learning to read
Fun therapy dog first class

- Flash 55 means to write a poem with exactly 55 words. Including the title, I did that.
- Plus was to add a little Zen. Here I tried to add a touch of Zen. I feel that dogs can have higher needs than to exist. Maslow in his hierarchy of needs may have felt otherwise (link).
- Adi (profile) was my beloved beagle dog, a therapy dog. We mainly visited with assisted living residents, many afflicted with Alzheimer's disease. She also was qualified as a reading dog (link). Adi died in September, 2012.
