Miss Going Out In Winter With Dog

My companion,
I wish you were here
To see snow falling out there.
Your favorite time of year
For your coat was made for it.
I would take you out
You would eat snow
Enjoying a fresh treat;
Then run rocket dog
Up and down and around
On large lawn across the street.
Oh, how I will miss our winter together.
You and me outside
Whether blizzard, ice or cold
We would waddle through snow together.


Quick Storm

Dark clouds move in

Sky turns grey

Wind whips into a frenzy

Trees rustle with coming storm

Then clouds burst open

Rain comes down quickly

In a torrent of hard drops

Then, it stops

Only rain soaked ground

Is reflected by the grass

And puddles on sidewalk
