Note to the record keeper:
Walked the Earth today
Barefoot on a trail.
It was on the way to a beach
On a crystal blue Lake.
And it was something
To feel barefoot stamping on solid dirt ground.
I went out deep in the water
Where it was mostly blue and colder
And I swam with little fishes
the size of sardines
but they didn’t make me hungry.
I was just trying to be like them
hangout, for a moment.
But then I got excited about it all.
Being there. At time like that. At a place like that.
With a snorkel
leaking in water
With sunglasses resting between two rocks on shore, for my return.
Just hoping those kids don’t steal them first.
