Look at life

Walking down the fence

Dragging my stick

From one to the other

Click click click

Something about it

The movement sound

Feeling in my hand

Cracks on the sidewalk

Moving by

Don’t step on one

Or you’ll

A few Phlox

Reach through

Smiling and playful

A little anthill popping up

They never stop

Do they

Always building


Duck under the purple

Butterfly bush

Covered with fluttering life

Click click click

Time seems to slow down

The warmth of

The afternoon sun

Blots in and out

From behind the leaves

Warming my face

The old lady waves

From the screened in

Porch where she sits

All day knitting

For a moment

I feel I’m stopped

And everything is

Moving past

I look

At life
