Wed. Challenge Poetic Asides prompt "turn around" Wed.Mar.9.2011

No Matter How Quickly I Turn, There You Aren’t

Ah me, I hear you everywhere these days it seems
You’re in my thoughts but you’re especially in my dreams

You caution me to slow right down, to listen to my girls
Remind me how quickly time goes, and infinity, it twirls

The other night while walking with the wolf dog very late
Around my lake near here,  I swore you were with me mate

And just before we came inside something made me turn around
In time to catch Aurora dancing off the sky in one spectacular bound

The dog went very still just then and growled low deep down inside
We both acknowledged you dear one – are you sure you really died?
