#5 Roommate

Warm puppy head rests on her neck

Almost planned they sigh in unison


She reaches to slide a free hand

Down fawn-colored baby fur


They will sleep until dark when

Stars shine without human challenge


A quick late walk outside for relief

Beneath a Universe of wonder


A slow morning allows more time

To understand each other
