together we go
down Talisman Avenue
across 15th and 17th
(where is 16th I wonder again)
up 18th’s long hill
and right on Joplin
and even if I know the way
because I plotted it years back
with Ari pushing
eagerly against his harness
my homeward stretch feels sweeter
with you beside me
down a grassy hill
into a field

I especially like the sentiment in this onr – Ari, walkong together, feeling like you’re seeing wildflowers becausee you”re walking together.

Thank you, dear Patty!
ooooh! i love this — i absolutely LOVE how you weave in the details – wonder where 16th went and the ending is stunning – wildflowers….And Ari pushing makes the walk sweeter — ok, i may just end up typing the whole poem to tell you how much i loved it. 🙂 Thank you, sweet friend. 🙂
Finding you here is such a sweet treat to me…and your words make my heart smile…can you see it from there? Blessings and love to you, dear Krishnapriya!
Yes, with Ari by my side, i can. 🙂 Love and Hugs. 🙂
There is such light and playfulness in whatever you write — somehow it just enters right in my heart – i am not able to express in words….but it is me who should be saying – Thank YOU. 🙂
we are joined in the wonder of the Journey *smiling heart*
