Wordy Wednesday: A Perfect Day

So, yesterday was the first sunny day in a couple of weeks and I ended up spending from around four PM until a little after midnight outside, between hanging out at Ann Arbor’s SummerFest and exploring in the Arb. It was a really, truly lovely day and I took a billion pictures and today I wrote this poem about it. (Completely coincidentally just in time for this week’s Wordy Wednesday! Completely coincidentally.)

**********

Yesterday I found myself
in a place different from anywhere
I’d ever been 

I mean I’d walked those streets
a thousand times, but I’d never
seen them in that light 

And I’m so grateful for the
little things that remind me
I’m alive 

And I’m so grateful for the
little things that bring me back
to life 

And it’s like:
I was walking down this path
in the forest and the sun was off
in the distance
beyond the treetops 

The only sounds were the birds
and the crickets, and somewhere
the wind was blowing,
but there it was safe and warm 

And I found home,
out away from home.
And it’s amazing how that happens 

I found home,
out away from home.
And it’s amazing how that happens.

Thanks for reading!
