'Snow Moon 2009'

by Michelle Deeman

Snow Moon 2009
warmth in the
February charades

Dog toys lay untouched on the grass
yesterday covered by snow, hidden

Those entreating eyes, those sacred soulful eyes that once hankered for pleasure
Your breathing hostile
Told me it was time to let you go

You and I
Bold of mind
Hearts breaking
made the journey to the place of partition.

I held you hard
conveying tones into your ear that gave you joy and security
Your head pressed against me as you sniffed my scent
‘I’ll see you on the other side’
Your final breath gone
I left the room and your doggy body behind

I took with me your essence and placed it in

the dog nest in my heart.
