Sunday Shelter Smiles

Elegant Athena

Betty Jane out on a walk

Lovely little Lia

Larry, part dog/part frog?

apropos all shelter sessions & smiles, present, past & future...happened upon this while reading W.S. Merwin


Many times loneliness
is someone else
an absence
then when loneliness is no longer
someone else many times
it is someone else's dog
that you are keeping
then when the dog disappears
and the dog's absence
you are alone at last
and loneliness many times
is yourself
that absence
but at last it may be
that you are your own dog
hungry on the way
the one sound climbing a
higher than time

W.S. Merwin
