Dreaming

Dreaming in black and white

Until nothing is left but what is essential.

Hunting the past

Walking the aisles of Home Depot

There is an old man with an old dog

A hunting hound

And his hunter,

Scouting the aisles

For possibilities

And poinsettias

The shadows of boy and puppy hover over them

Like plaid and pine needles

I smile

He frowns

The dog wags.

Bright red flowers tucked under his arm,

They exit into the sun.

Gates

He leapt the gate

In a single stride

A blur of black

Leaving nothing but ink

My heart soared.

Take the leap, stop fiddling with the lock.

Watch

She simply sat on the bed

And watched me while I, in pain, tried to nap,

Somehow I felt better.

Being looked after is not a bad thing.

Watch those you love, with love.

Who? Where?

The air was filled with questions

Who

Who

Who

.

Where are You?

You, You….

.

The woods confirm

“Even to question truly is an answer”

Striped

Tiny tabby

Green eyed and striped

Wraps around my heart

As I heal.
