Drabble – How To Explain?

Sitting on the porch

and watching the dog

The dog didn’t want to sit still,

– because he was young –

but he didn’t have a friend to chase

So the little black-and-white head, triangular and pointy,

picked up a stuffed toy

– left in the yard for another dog, of course –

flicked it up into the air

And chased after where he threw it

Bouncing in the grass, overshooting it, skidding around

Throwing up clods of dirt.

He looked down at his phone.

And wondered how he could ever share this

The feeling

Of sitting on the porch

and watching the dog
