Should I go back to work?
No. Just making copies for Monday. Almost done.
Let’s go for a walk.
Up the hill, down two blocks,
quiet neighborhood of 1930’s cottages
green lawns, no snow, warm, in March;
Turn north over the cable pedestrian bridge
Over dry Fiddle Creek beneath a canopy
of maples and pine
filled with chattering songbirds
across to Cole Park
and our conversation
drawn to the blue sky
blooming in the lawn
tying the earth
and sky as one
a pause in Spring for eyes tired of brown and grey
A gift of nature’s paintbrush after a long day.
