Shadow Commemoration Day Thirteen

One of the strangest things, is switching from the plural to the singular.  To go from ‘dogs’ to saying ‘dog’.  To go from saying, ‘Shadow and Unter’ to felling that stutter in the speech and saying ‘Unter’ alone.  There’s that moment before the walk, where instead of putting a harness on one dog and then on another, there is only one.  There’s that moment, walking down the street, where there’s only one leash.  There’s walking outside, with only one treat.  There’s filling only one dog bowl with food.  There’s more like this.  One of the strangest things, is switching from the plural to the singular.

two white flower blooms,
up high in a dogwood tree,
winds blow one away
