It’s been a little rare lately,
Feeling at ease in myself.
Kind of like my dog this morning,
Once excited, so hard to rein in.
An unexpected bunny ran across the path
As we stepped out of the front door.
I had to strap him to my waist
And keep a consistent gait for blocks.
This morning there were more bits of food
Lying in wait, in tall grass, unseen by me.
With each one, the pull started again.
Today was harder, for both of us.
