Nothing to Prove

Minus 10 this morning in

Shushan,

Washington County NY.

 

Up at 6.

Got to walk the dog

Long underwear, boots,

Coat, hat, mittens.

 

Samantha, our great Pyrenees

Waits impatiently

 

Outside.

Fortified.

Crispness in the nostrils.

I’m ready.

 

Not too windy

Let’s stay out for a while.

Great Pyrenees love the cold,

Adore the snow,

I tell myself.

 

Samantha does her business and

Heads back to the house.

I follow.
