Waiting for the big step.

The town quivered.

An ancient legend shook itself and rose.

The mountains no longer loomed protectively.

The sky was hounded.©

If they were perfectly still.

Huddled flat to the ground. Among marsh reeds.

Perhaps their little waterway would be seen as an offering: A bowl of temper cooling water running right to his feet.

Then refreshed, dog tired, he might return to sleep.

Once there were giants. “Sit. Stay. Guard,” he was told. Patiently, he waits for their return.©

      Hope you are right, Easy. Wishes for the world: Kindness, loyalty, and fierce protective devotion. Sky high dreams by dogs that would be wonderful to spread across the world. Thanks for unclouding the scene
