Haibun: Comfort

It is almost two years ago that Mark Woods had to make a difficult decision. Walnut the whippet was eighteen years old and had been increasingly unwell. He wanted to take his faithful friend for one last walk on his favourite beach. In a simple Facebook post he invited other dogwalkers to come along if they wanted to say goodbye to Walnut. The post was shared and shared. When we saw it on Twitter we shared it too.

Hundreds of people turned up. Children walked up to Walnut to stroke him and say goodbye. He was hugged, time and time again, while Mark carried him around wrapped in a blanket. Walnut’s eyes were full of love. Occasionally, he would look up at Mark and lick his face.

autumn gathers
her blanket of comfort
around our heart
