I never thought I’d look forward to these.
The air is cool and still I break a sweat pushing my way uphill toward my day.
It’s grey today and I hope it lasts.
Lately it’s been hot without a shade in sight.
This day is a good one while I sit and wait for the next moment.
My feet, grounded in gravel;
there’s nothing but silence all around.
I hear the birds speak to one another as if they call for something distant.
It’s all here.
