across the sands
our worlds come closer
winter’s light

  1. Seize the day … and the whole nine yards. The reflection of the dog (name unknown to me) on the water is complemented by the jutting curve of the rocks.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words dear Perpetua πŸ’œ The black whippet’s name is Eivor, whose reflection you see in the water, and the blue whippet’s name is Pearl πŸ™‚πŸΎπŸΎ


  2. I’m looking at my human
    I want to go outside.
    She says the streets are icy
    She’s afraid to slip and slide
    If only she had feet like mine
    With pads, and fur and claws
    She wouldn’t have to wait
    Until there is a thaw.

    Love, Dusty T. Dog, the Indomitable.
