A glittery Band-Aid and a late appointment was how I started my morning
Followed by a silky, icy, soy milk coffee that tantalized my tongue
Each blink shading my eyes from the near-blinding sun as I stare at the trees
Those damn sunglasses are somewhere…
Moving, thinking, jamming, waiting for the light to turn green.
Tap tap tap, da da da dum…
Who else senses this energy?
I am not rushed, or anxious or eager
Calmness and serenity put my caffeine-powered mind at ease
Take a deep breath and savor the moment
Where to next kid?
I’d like to find some fresh, succulent berries to stain my lips a magenta-like blood
Taste the grass-like aroma for a mere second, and ah! It’s gone
No can do, still on my journey. The berries must wait.
But you – you with your deep hazel eyes have captivated me
More people should pull over when they see something so attractive
I cannot, and you don’t even notice me
But I feel you; I feel the kindness in you through your eyes
Damn the light is green!
Goodbye, safe travels
Perhaps a meet cute situation will bring us together again
Until then, I will keep moving, thinking and jamming
Singing the words to this song and I don’t care who sees me!
This is my life; my world and I’ll savor every moment
Won’t you join me?
