am old,

many tales

many dog years,

my eyes are dim yet tastes of the wind are

in my grasp the essences of fresh air

lift up my ears,

my pores sigh

  1. I love this, for itself and what it expresses, and how it reminds me of poems I have written for my cat Raquel (now dead) when she was so old…the spirit remains strong even when the body is weakened or even gone. Thank you.
