magic in the air

walking
just for fun
not in a rush
to go anywhere
or be anywhere

I look around
there in the forward
distance
is
a man

I ignore him
he is in a rush

Some pretty flowers
no, they are just weeds
but still pretty

two girls walk by
laughing
I say hi
they go on their way

Now for up the hill
Oh wait
Look
A duck
A duck flying

Blue clouds to one side
and white ones
in the distance

Splendid feeling
as I make it up the hill

and to the hearing of a car
I look behind…it is way back there
I can hear the car
swoosh
swoosh
almost like the sounds of waves
upon the seashore

Drawn into the sounds
am I listening to them
or to the sound of my
beating…breathing
piter pater
thump
thump
thump

and klank

The car went past
so close
it almost ran me
over

Now I understand
the driver was texting
or something with their phone
Ugh…I could have died

Back to my walk
I am grateful for my walk
the duck the two girls
even for the man in a hurry

Remembering I am here
I am alive
I am…observing, hearing,
and walking,
and breathing

I am alive

Faith is like looking through the viewfinder of a camera; it helps us see differently.
