She waits, alert and patient, Waiting for she knows not what. But when it comes, she's up... Eager for food, a walk, recognition.
Her head low, her body long, She rests and waits until... Ears twitch, head lifts and She peers under long eyebrows.
She waits. Does she ruminate on yesterday? Is she considering tomorrow? She is waiting; waiting for the day.
I reach across and stroke her silky fur. I nuzzle her neck and caress her ears. She pleads me with her eyes, Then lowers her head and waits.
