Two dogs play before the sun slung low in an unmarred sky blue enough to drink.

Its waning glow renders two perfect silhouettes, ink-black

Glowing with the corona of dark, glossy coats

Before them shimmer the fine, silver cables of a thousand unseen architects,

Their life’s work delicately stretched and spun across slender green blades.

The dogs, heedless, laugh as they run

Pink tongues lolling with the sheer joy of unfettered motion

Perfect white teeth gleam in wolfish smiles as the gallop across a thousand silver strands.
