SolaceSight now limited
to moving shapes, what is sound
to an aging border collie?

A low rumble, the barely
open window anticipating
the coming rain. She paces

in the dark, a rare occurrence,
hearing mostly gone.
From the side of the bed,

she nudges my hand. Reaching
down to rub her ears, I know
this won’t do, rise to sit

beside her, stroke her side.
These days will be gone.
We all need comfort.
