Submission for this week’s One Single Impression prompt: twilight.



Just hours before the final sleep

We love.

He visits, still, in my dreams

to remind me.

Josh, beloved black German Shepherd, 11.5 years old
Labor Day, 2005. We put him down the next day. He rode
in the back of the pickup to the vet’s office on a mattress,
with his head up, looking around, sniffing the smells.
It was the canine equivalent of a yogi dying sitting up.
