The Dog & I (Day 224)

You see, the dog 
        & I took 
                a walk 
        this evening 

Our neighborhood 
        came out 
                to greet 
       her—all of her 
favorite friends 

& she just 
        smiled & smiled
                with that 
        particularly canine 
breed of joy

At that moment
        a thought fluttered 
                 down & alit 
        on my shoulder: 
This 
is feeling 
like Everything is 
going to 
be 
all right
