Do you believe in ghosts?
Backing out the driveway, I glance at the spot
where my sweetest sheepdog buried his bones.
He died in January.
Nothing ever grew in this spot, mostly because
he'd dig, hide and rearrange his stash on a daily basis,
even thru the coldest winter.
This morning, there is something there.
This.
Yes, I'm spooked.

Yes, I believe in ghosts. Any animal who has loved or was loved by his/her owner/family will always want to stay close.

I believe more in the impossibility of killing Tiger Lily roots.
He probably buried them once.
Sorry Dunf.
Now...if Pookums used to hide her stash there...that would be another story
