girl with dog

days gone by - in memory of Bonnie (Gilbertson) Ross

time and dust,
riding a north dakota wind.
a picture
hangs from the wall.
so far removed;
young girl crouching with her dog,
that best friend
long ago riding off
on the wind
across the north dakota plains.
her proud smile
gleaming back.
how could she have known?
with life full ahead
she was to be my wife's mother.
north dakota dust leaving sweet traces,
laid to rest in montana
