Even Dogs Grow Homesick When the Leaves Change

The light is just right
and my dog's gaze
is a pumpkin gaze
so orange almost a flame
head up and ears low
tail fluttering
his gaze asks
can we go now?
I look into the world
now bright but growing dim
yes I tell him
the day and season are at an end
we can go now
