into the embers

    red embers--
    she persuades me
    to stay in bed

    thanks for that sigh Eric - I've always been inclined to trust old dogs' commentary on our lives . . .

    old dog wags a greeting to
    the compost-heap rat

    This is so vivid and so true that it immediately feels like my own experience.

    What a powerful atmosphere, Eric --
    I can see it, hear it, smell it!

    playful pup
    long after the last ember turns ashy--
    the old hound farts
