Monday Musings – 50 Word Story

The chilly early mornings in the park now require a vest and gloves

as we are welcomed in the solitude along the pond by only the company of a few remaining red-winged blackbirds

and sounds of leaves rustling

under Harper’s paws as she sets a steady pace along the paths.
