Reflection

Can you see his right eye?

Can you see his right eye?

Watching, waiting, motionless,

Never giving up his post.

Even as his eyesight fades,

Levi performs his job,

Dutiful, young at heart.

 

Someday the reflection

Will be a ghost,

The face forever etched in my memory.

An old oak tree was behind me.

An old oak tree was behind me.

  1. I know at ten and a half and failing eyesight that our time together is dwindling down. Dogs are not sad. They don’t feel sorry for themselves. Levi knows he has a job to do, to watch over the back yard and he does his work seriously every day. Border Collies are awesome.
