Autumn Tableau

The prairie moon
is a white, white sliver
in a sky filled with stars

The dog is padding along at my side
I can feel her quiet presence
through the leash in my hand

Overhead, the cottonwoods
are whispering in the cold,
soft breeze

The rhythm of my steps
on the leaf-strewn gravel
swells to fill the silence

with bits of song
imagined memories,
impossible dialogs

words, words, words

As we move together
from shadow to moonlight
again and again

the dog,
and my restless monkey mind
