Walk to School

We follow paw prints
along the desert path.
We talk about spelling
and practice for math.

We ponder the prints,
"Dog or coyote?"
Last night's howl
was low and throaty.

We walk a little faster,
we pick up the pace.
When we reach school
we are running a race.


  1. How lovely to have that time together. I feel like I was there.

    1. Thanks, Liz! When the talk turned to bobcats and mountain lion prints, I wanted to change the subject. = )


I look forward to hearing your respectful responses...thank you for taking the time to comment! :)
