Joy walking on a summer morning



Talking a joy walk this morning
Down to my happy place
Four days of cool, two with rain
And the neighborhood shines
I’ll amble on down toward the river
Past the church
And the duplex where the guy
Is always outside smoking
Past the roundabout
Newly repainted in its hippy colors
I’ll cross the two busy streets
And climb the stairs
In the old laundry
Inhale the age of the building
105 years at least
And settle in to painting
There’ll be joy in the return as well
For it’s a cool morning
And I’ll still have breeze at 11.
