a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

Diamond Lil

The Border Collie maneuvers the rocky descent
The heavy rains flood carrying sticks
Stylish whirls, dip carrying the sludge
Surrounding the stones with alluvial mud
Cuddling the Border with tricky spaces
Faces watch as she holds her own
Homeward she travels
Tracking the master home
