On Taking a Different Path

I took a different path today,

not my regular route,

not my regular rut.


Trying to gain new perspective

because even those who examine

and reflect and remember –


Miss things

calling them mundane

instead of miraculous.


The connection

to the world

in a box.


Sun shining

devoid of the shadow

of eclipse.


Birds chiping

on tree branches

creating oxygen


to breathe

to live

to dream.
