She couldn’t quite shake it
that sense
that things were
out of place …

disturbed

another dead bird
on the deck

strange depressions
in the meadow grass

shadows crossing the
field of a moonlit night

unfamiliar animal tracks
on the road near the house

the growl of her dog
when there was nothing in sight

anxious days
led to sleepless nights

allowing irrational fears
to creep inside her mind

perplexed, she packed her bags
leaving the
disturbed things
behind

    1. Thanks, Bill. Traveled back to western Washington yesterday and planning to stay here until Scott retires next year. We’ll make monthly trips to the property together on his long weekends off. Hope all is well with you😊
