Daze

It has been a long day,

I look up at the sun setting over the river as the sky fills with feathers and purpose.

Some have wingspans that carve the sky as they fly,

Some leave footprints on the earth..

All of us following the sun,

All of us resting under the stars.

Walk Softly

I felt a soft whisper on my arm,

A tiny spider was there,

Gently walking, meaning no harm.

Looking over your shoulder

The crow in the meadow

Looked over their shoulder at me

As I was looking at them.

.

I saw a crow in a meadow.

What I wonder did they see when they looked at me?

.

When you look over your shoulder,

Who is it you see?

Agility: smoke and mirrors

A little spot of smoke

sped by the corner of my eye

into a tunnel.

And swish,

He leapt

out into a field of joy.

Sisters

Nose to nose

They sniff each other hello.

I see You!

Clouds

Sweet sleeping clouds of dogs snooze in the folds of the rumpled bedspread.

All shades of cream

Lost in their dreams.

Peace Out

The little brindled Dog

Lay dead by the side of the highway.

I only got the slightest of glimpses

Yet tears burst forth from the dams of my eyelids

As I drove.

The rain poured inside and out.

.

Only moments before,

My eyes were dry,

at the sight of a raccoon

(Though my heart filled with sadness)

In a similar state.

.

Connection is everything,

I once had a brindle grrl.

Our task:

To know we are all connected.

And to still keep driving safely through the rain.
