I just found 100 Word Wednesday! Thank you, Bikurgurl!
To participate visit the link here. And, of course, you knew if it had a dog, I was going to write it!
On our first April trail-walk, Kasey was ten weeks, and frenetic bounding would have him dropping at my feet, needing to be toted.
We began hiking in summers on the same, though ever-changing trail. At night, Kasey would snuggle close between me and my boyfriend, his ears twitching with night’s sounds.
Last year Kasey turned fifteen, my boyfriend said “Sayonara,” and started a new, seemingly younger, life.
This October Kasey and I attempt the trail. He hears my ragged cough, waits, his face aged white. On a rocky precipice, we pause and our eyes follow as Canada geese arrow south.
This was written as a tribute to my own Kasey who left me on 12/15/12.
