I walked today
Long empty strides
No purpose
New faces greeted me
all turned up with smiles
colors
golden
pink
red
But there was no joy in it
No leash tugging
in eager exploration
Just this emptiness
numbly going thru the motions

without him
Spring doesn't move me.

When I am in pain, I shoot and I write. I will try not to torture you for too long.

I do miss my Geronimo.

This is straight out of the camera. Only a crop.

Thank you much for the spotlight Kai!

    Beautiful poetry and image...Regenia, You will enjoy spring again with a new little dog companion eagerly walking along side of you...She won't be Geronimo with the same personality but she will bring joy and a new chapter to your life...Speaking of new chapters...You are going to be grandmother very soon..That will be an exciting time for you...I have a feeling she is going to look just like you!

  • Barbara Socor

    Such a very beautiful image Regina! The writing too is very fine and very moving.....Like Andrea, I believe you will soon feel a new leash tug at your heart. Not the same, but good too....And a grandchild! Now there's a tug!

    First, I must say that I really love the angle of this lovely and touching photo. Second, your poem is very good. It expresses very eloquently the sadness and loss you are feeling at this moment in time. We should all feel free to express ourselves in times of sorrow as well as you do, my friend. Geronimo will always be in your heart and memories, until the day you reunite with him at your journey's end. Hugs, Regenia.
