Puente Poetry: Reading the World

the day opens a new book
of sights, scents and sounds
for the eternally curious
canines we adopted

~ or is it the other way around? ~

who is walking who on any
given day when we take turns
to guide and follow a spark
that bounces from the stars?

Wishing you all a happy Monday and a peaceful week ahead,
