A Cold December Day

Updated on December 25, 2009

Cold December Day 

a crisp

nostril tingling



snow glistening


the afternoon sun

burning across

another cold day.

Adam and me




through the forest

a snowshoe rabbit


bounds away

and out of sight.

we hear

the singing

sounds of snowmobiles

we watch

they disappear

as quickly

as the rabbit.

overhead sounds

a small aircraft

excites Adam

as he thinks

of another place

another friend

he wants to run

following after its sound.

so we run

he has a stick

i try to tackle him

he's almost laughing

i see it in his eyes

he gets away

running in circles

the snow spurting upward 

a snowy dust cloud.

i'm as happy as he is

i'm laughing

his enjoyment

engulfing the both of us

as i chase him

back to the house.

a warm fire awaits

inside this familiar shell

and we settle in

and rest

on this cold December day.

(Adam was a grand Golden Retriever who left a distinct impact upon our lives)
