I sit out back
among the flowers planted
in memory of
their dog who had been killed
car never stopped
he is buried among the flowers
it is peaceful here
Zoe is with me
and my ever present glass of wine
Zoe is my drinking buddy
I pour her a taste
in a little saucer I’ve brought
as I elevate my glass toward the moon
and, as she is wont to do
Zoe throws back her little head
and howls a moon greeting
these are special times
heart-warming even
I drink alone
no human company to be found
eh . . . I have my moon shadow
Zoe and Rustie
and of course the pretty flowers
a lone, spindly rose bush
which puts out beautiful yellow flowers
and the smaller flowers
surrounding the tall rose bush
reflection time
faces from the past
zoom in and out of my thoughts
I’m high on wine
and Zoe, Rustie, the moon and my shadow
are true blue
I am surrounded by what makes life
ease into my soul
and shares with me
eternal bliss
as I finish off the wine
sha appears in front of me
holding her own wine glass
we smile
and then she said
see! I told you we would be together
here in this after life

all I could do was hold out my arms
