The forecast called for rain
The next three days and
The gloom of cold December showers was
Putting a damper of this vacation’s start
So on an impulsive moment
My wife, dog, and I
Headed to a park
To walk in the crisp sunshine
Of the next to last shortest day of the year
The grass in the fields held that wintery life
Brittle and desaturated with plenty of green
To brighten the brown of the trees
Our pace was perfect
Somewhere between workout and stroll
Our minds were at ease
Just hanging outside
In the last of the sun
For the next three days

Thank goodness for today
And my walking partners.
