NaPoWriMo 2013, Day #4 - hachiko, the dog who waited

Today's inspiration comes from a photo my daughter took while in Japan. When she was in Tokyo, I told her, please, get me a picture of Hachiko's statue.

I have had dogs before, and I can understand why they are called man's best friend...

nine long years
no sign of master.


Notes: This piece feels a bit uncompleted. Maybe I will rework it in the future.
