The Architect

For Sunday Muse BlogSpot. Shay is the guest poster of the image this week.

The Architech
“I’m a dreamer. I have to dream and reach for the stars, and if I miss a star then I grab a handful of clouds.” – Mike Tyson

out of the mist the cabin emerges –
like the village of Brigadoon.
When it first began appearing
the pup wasn’t even born yet.
Now it is adult and sits at my side.
Sometimes I reach down and stroke him
and his tail wags and his eyes smile.
Soon we will fade into the mist again.
When we reappear,
the pup will be an older adult,
like me. The trash bin will never be filled
and the moon will be full.
My pup and I will take a break
and walk around in the mist
and return to the cabin for honey tea.

    It’s interesting how you picked up on the pup who seems ever loyal to the man. A wonderful take on the image. Walking in the mist can be invigorating.

    Oh, the whimsical feeling of mist and Brigadoon. I love the idea of the man and dog aging together, and having tea and honey.
