Orphan-boy came to us. . .

Tail between legs, ears down, head bowed.

Hungry, Hesitant.

Bouncy, waggle-tailed, Circle dancer

Table Goddess

 

She presides from the table in front of my window.

And without opening her eyes, sees. . .

birds,

grass, blossoms, trees,

my doggie,

a man cutting grass,

you,

and especially me.

And smiles. . .
