A feathered friend

So many in this busy City
find friendship from their pets.

So many in the quiet country
find companions in their animals.

It seems somehow strange for me
to meet a man on a busy sidewalk
with a friend and companion
that I thought would be found
on a quiet lane.

A hint of winter

Wonderful scent of rain,
but not quite yet.
A brisk touch in the air,
but not quite yet.
Crisp leaves in the fading
grass. Not quite yet.
