The Dog WalkerAn old man and his dog
Age in tandem
Not worth a second glance, hurry past
Just a dog, nothing to write home about
A leg on four corners, a shaggy coat
Just a dog
Look a little closer
Commitment tied by a braid of leather
Not love, he would frown at the word
The dog measures his step
To his masters faltering gait
Gentle on the leash
A kind morning
June, heavy with honeysuckle
Summer or the salt winds of winter
It matters little
The twice daily duty must be performed
I smile as they turn the cornerAuthor's Notes:

I enjoyed this and the lesson John. It's often the small things that make the difference, or so my wife says.

Thanks for reading friend, I wouldn't dare to comment on your wife's remark.
