To Start Another Day

I sit on the porch in the early morning

And watch the world.

I watch the birds and squirrels awaken.

I watch the sun slowly drift

Across the lawn;

Casting a golden light

And drying the dew.

I watch people jogging

And getting ready for work.

I watch a woman as she walks,

Outlining the perimeter of every parking space

And I wonder – why?

I watch as people start their cars,

Pull out and head off.

Where are they going –?

To work?

To play?
To start another day.

Delightful scene sketch and related internalization.
