Saturday morning story (Day 853)

Saturday morning story

long dirt road   dairy farms

buzz of airplanes overhead

and we had no place else to go

so we walked    farther 

than we’d ever gone before

and the world opened just 

a little   unexpected   delightful

corners unfolding bit by bit

revealing hints of wonders

we might uncover if we learned 

where to look   someday 

soon   but not that day  

when we wandered laughing   

up the road in the sun   because   

we were still children then

blessed with time and each other

and we had nowhere else to be
