walking the dog

I walk by sight
She walks by scent

the two of us make an unexpected pair

I follow the same path I always have
She parts the tall grass like Pharoah's daughter

the two of us are learning each other's pace

She strains towards invisible squirrels
I spy lady bugs and shadowed bouquets

the two of us are seeing more sunsets these days.

*Izzy is the rescue dog I never knew I always wanted. She's a sweet companion.
