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.
