Found on Jackson Street

Wednesday afternoon I walked to a friend’s front porch where I was dropping something off. On the way back, I noticed this bright blue ballon and it’s red string, the green weed

I’d missed seeing the balloon the first time but there it was waiting for me on my way home.

Loved the colors.

Wonder what the story is.

I’m always looking for signs

As I got into my car at The Lakes parking lot, I saw this card by my foot.

The late afternoon light made the pavement and painted line come alive.  The business card appeared to float.

Do I put the knitting down and begin to quilt?

Thought I should identify whose card I found…

What I Found on the Sidewalk by School

I walked on by-

nearly passed it up-

even thought it caught my eye.

It’s a rush and a hike between schools.

Time’s always short.

But after I stepped past, I turned around

got down on one knee and shot this little gift

to me- hard boiled yolk, a bit dried,

rolled in sandy crumbs,

abandoned on a sidewalk, fell from a lunch bag

or on the way to the nearby dumpster, missed.

Easter is over.

Didn’t make it to the egg salad bowl.

I drove by after school, to see if it was smashed

maybe rolled an inch, more dry, but still there

all those hours later, just not in as good a light!
