TITLE: Smelling

Humans are so dense!
They sift through fragrances half-blind;
They’re clueless of the missed delights—
The endless flavors that I savor—
And call their blindness “smelling”!

What joy, to be a dog!
To turn each stone with wild delight,
And taste of fragrances untold;
To see, to touch, to truly know,
Now that’s what I’d call “smelling”!

Humans are so clueless!
They cannot see the joys they miss;
They gulp down bliss and miss the taste
Because they look for something else,
And call their denseness “living”!

What life, to be a dog!
To savor every joy God brings,
And smell each gift we come across;
To live each moment to the fullest,
Now that’s what I’d call “living”!

Humans are so blind!
They chain themselves to concrete benches,
And chant religious nonsense;
They’re clueless of the scent of heaven
And call their nonsense “faith”!

What bliss, to be a dog!
To chase the scent of angel’s wings,
Wherever they may wander;
To follow the trail that takes me home,
Now that’s what I’d call “faith”!

So true Humans can be quite dense at times. Although after washing my dog after she had a romp in the woods, I'm kind of glad I don't smell everything she does. She might think she's chasing angel's wings, but it smells like something else yo me! You did a great job in tying up the topic in a lovely poem.

Great angle for this week's theme...from a dog's view.
