A siren piercing the night is not unusual when you live across the street from a fire station, but this time is different. The sound has stopped outside our house. Rousing now, I find flashing lights on the windows. As I step outside, EMT attendants wheel my elderly neighbor to a waiting ambulance.

        morning greets
        the little white dog . . .
        new home
