The Scent of Change

I wake to a cold nose against my hand
the soft patter of rain on the skylight

I slip on my clothes, the click of the leash,
and we step out into a world transformed

The streets are dark and shiny
here and there a streetlight smears a puddle

The air is rich and spicy,
heavy with the damp scent of change

She stops and lifts her face to sniff
then looks at me as if to say “isn’t this amazing?”

Her excitement sweeps us both along
off to meet her first autumn dawn
