stray

a stray dog

i'm fascinated by
and jealous of
the sense of aimless purpose displayed by stray dogs
they know exactly where they're going - nowhere
and they're ok with that
another spring - i'm ok with that
thanks for setting me thinking bill
cheers

Andrew, John, pat, and gautami, my thanks. There was something in the moment, including its indeterminacy, that said spring to me.

"...they know exactly where they're going - nowhere

I cannot stop thinking:

a wanderer's
worn-out shoes --
it was a long winter

(Floot's comment is fine)
