I’ve always been a fan of painted brick
not sure why
it seems to offer a sense of assurance
an extra touch
stable and well dressed
preferences are interesting and I’m once again
a porch sitter
here in a rocking chair
admiring the sky, sunlight through the trees
listening to the hum of an a/c unit
connected to a house with an historic marker out front
I chuckle to myself at the irony but am thankful
for amenities and saving graces
tiny moments which signal our salvation
life is nothing more than our longest journey
and I’m privileged to watch it unfold from this porch
for the time being and that has to be enough
to ask for more is an attempt at cheating or much worse
a breach and I am choosing a pass
why not simply enjoy the beauty in receiving
I ask myself and answer I most certainly will
