the way when lost . . .

When a dog is wandering around free without a leash

It’s the way of the mountain to take it in.

Someone always shelters the dog from harm’s way until its’ owner can be notified or found.

A small scraggly haired dog ran by on the road in front of our house earlier, its’ body shaking as it looked my way.

I spoke to it in a friendly tone hoping it would come to me.

But the dog ran back the way it came with a scared look in its eyes.

It breaks my heart to see any dog roaming the neighborhood or anywhere in the mountains alone.

There is no worse feeling,

Except the very moment the dog’s owner realizes it too.

One thought on “the way when lost . . .
