October Walk

Shoes on.
Jackets on.
Dog leashed.
Hats on.
Child strapped in stroller.

walk, jog, walk, jog. The sky grey and spitting rain.
hurry home, hurry home. The last thing we need is an ear ache or worse.

Shoes off.
Jackets off.
Dog unleashed.
Hats off.
Child set free.

Grey clouds gone. The sun shines at me through the window as if tickled by its own humor.

Don't tell anyone, but I didn't know I was writing a poem. How strange.
