love today

it mattered not


was forty shades of gray

my eyes perceived the gloom

but my heart knew nothing of it


descending a touchstone stairway

my balance provided

by hands of friendship


kindness extended

in an autographed copy

of a life’s work


help from your long-lost brother up north

should you ever need it


the family grows


comfort shared in a plate of sweet potato fries


happiness is the inevitable result

of good choices made


my being wells with peace

as i reach the bottom step


a message from a beautiful human

warming the cement

with chalked letters

the color of sunshine


the sweetest well wish

for every person

whose path brought them this way


for you to simply
