It was a beautiful day so Satch and I took a stroll.
It was wonderful being outdoors again after a
winter, too long and too cold.
We strolled past stone steps leading nowhere.
Beside it, winter berries wither on their thorny branches
and daisies sprout signaling the first signs of spring.
We stumble upon a make-believe campfire that
crackled and sparked in our imaginations. After
contemplating pretend marshmallows, we return
Satchel fell asleep and I watch him nap.
I wonder if he's dreaming of building his own
pretend campfire and perhaps he'll
scamper inside with a fist full of daisies for his mama.
