Time for a walk

The sun hung low in the sky
And the light was beginning to fade
Maggie the Schnoodle and Jack the Retriever
Stood before me 
Tails wagging
Noses pointing to leashes
Looking expectantly
Tapping their toe/paw 
Checking the clock
Clearly reminding me
It was now time for their daily walk.

Okay, I promised. We'll go after I do just one more thing.
I’ll just check my email, oh and just search Google on that one thing I heard about...
Oh look there, well I wonder if anyone’s done any research on that, let’s see...
Well, hmmm, are there any blogs with opinions on the matter, let’s see…
Ah ha! I must bookmark this page and come back to it,
For I must take the dogs out before it gets dar………………k?

How can it be? Where did the sun go? 
Why, only a moment ago there was plenty of light.
Alright Jack, let's go Maggie …how 'bout a walk by the light of the moon?

Inspired by Laura McKenzi's "Beyond (an un-named time that follows day)fall" contest.

    I enjoyed your free verse reality conversation with the pups. Marvelous time keepers. And it is strange how the clock in our own mind seems to stop while the world's time continues. Someone told me that is the side of the brain art emanates from and that side knows no time. So many things to think about. ...Like your comments..Interesting though I must reread them several more times . Linda Witt-King, thank you and I certainly enjoy reading your poetry and am happy to see it here. -Robert
