#Tanka 54 + #Painting of Labrador in Bluebell Woods

Vision of beauty.
Down yonder, in bluebell woods,
my chocolate dog.
Love immortalised in paint,
such sweet banishment of gloom.

Rewind that decade!
Side by side we almost flew,
chasing time and scents.
Labrador sleeked through meadow,
coat a-shimmer. A mirror. 
Upon reflection,
side by side our hearts still fly,
with time the hounder.
We compete for silver now,
not of riches but of hair.
