I missed my walk this morning
and now I think I am glued to this chair
earbuds affixed to drown out the reality tv
a giant insect is knocking on someone’s door
and I hit the pause button and fold my laptop closed
stretching stiff limbs, I say I think I’ll take a shower
you nod your head and eat more chips
I wonder as I let the hot water
pour over my back
why my thoughts are technicolor
while the world is black and white
there must be something wrong
with my corneas
maybe I need a pair
of those 3D glasses
or depth perception therapy
as I lay my book on the nightstand
and close my eyes
I think I will take my walk tomorrow
I see better with my feet
on the ground


I meant to post this a few days ago when I wrote it but got busy. Spent yesterday and today with number one son and future daughter-in-law. Pampered Chef shower and arranged for the restaurant for the rehearsal dinner. The list is being whittled down 🙂

    My perception of the world is a dirty, muddy gray. Otherwise I am with you. A walk will always enable you to see something that will lift your spirits especially if it is not human. Mind you I am often away with the fairies.
