TO WALK MORNINGS
Sweat nestles between my breast,
Drips down from hair to ear.
A crisp cut is hidden on the breeze,
Before the heat, sizzles brain cells.

Thinking expands: to clouds shared,
By me, by you, by everyone of us;
Whether we are out in the new sun,
Walking in old sneakers, or,

Planning to buy new ones.
So another day, when the car
Is parked at the mall,
Looking down on the scenic view,

Trying to click a photo,
Of the then setting sun,
Oh, but there's nor enough space
On the phone, too much data.

New sneakers have been bought
Nonetheless, for walking
In the crisp morning air.
And the sweat will nestle

Between my breast, and drip
From hair down to ear.

  1. I guess that is the problem with relying on a mechanical devise rather than developing a good memory. However, she is going to walk and gather some new material anyway. Nice Gillena

  8. What a delightful cameo of that walk in to town with you Gillena (probably cursing because you hadn't downloaded the pictures earlier to make more room!)

  13. I loved sharing your morning walk with you and I'm very familiar with the various frustrations of photography using whatever mode. I like how you bring us back to the beginning,,,
