a stray dog
going my way
early spring
(Shiki Kukai, February 2008)

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

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)
