The photo is her last, taken the day before she died :>(


shimmer

she had come out
for breakfast
nibbling on fodder beet root
but lunchtime
found Truffle
still
stiffening
on the bedroom hay

mouse-small
and delicate
her hair streaked with silver
yet lustrous to the last
that silky-smooth brown

goodbye good guinea-girl
shimmer in memories
loss hurts the heart
but loving is all
