I woke up late one morning

and went for a run.

Ran into a man with too much to say,

But there is no such thing

So I listened all the way

As he joined me.

We ran to the store

Where we bought coffee.

He told me all about his daughter and her graceful ways;

“Oh, she’s beautiful, ya wouldn’t know,”

He marveled.

We exchanged words for hours.

It only felt like a moment, until I realized it.
