coming across these stairs
in the middle of the woods
wondering what they once led to
and how much time has been lost
since they led anyone there?
“lost time is never found again. “

tunnel through nature
light to dark to light again
leads me to beauty.
“poetry is the tunnel at the end of the light.”

walking through a park
on a beautiful day
looking up to the sky
quietly sitting way up there
was a very polite and interested audience
it was standing room only.
“ive never had any idea that what I like would resonate with the audience, and i’m pleasantly surprised when it does.”
-tom petty (r.i.p.)

many parks that i visit
are quiet and solitary experiences
and then there are others
teeming with people and life
and noise and activities
of all kinds
both have such an important place and purpose.
“parks and playgrounds are the soul of a city.”
― marty rubin

happiness is a dog
running free on 10 green acres
out in the elements
playing with the others
water bowls for all
in a huge fenced park devoted to them
and their people
walking and talking
benches and trees
waiting for them
when they tire out
while the dogs
just keep on smiling and running.
“dogs have boundless enthusiasm but no sense of shame.
i should have a dog as a life coach.”
