sitting on the steps leading down
depending on one’s perspective
the wind moves through my hair
and dances with the birches’ yellowing leaves
the pup finds me and wiggles between my feet
head resting on my left leg
we sit close in the wind
allow it to ruffle our feathers
and stir our spirits
it is quiet except for the leaves shaking in the wind
they dance singly and as troupe
granting me an early autumn performance
my heart beats rhythmically
applause for this
all of this
i bow my head
to my heart
to my pup
sending a little love your way, m

I think your little dog is lucky to have you! Sounds like a great fall day.
Love received!!!! Beautiful and poetic.
You had me sitting there next to you. Feeling the breeze, hearing the leaves, loving my loyal dog. I love your heart of gratitude.
Fall weather and a faithful friend = bliss
