Welcome Back

It is possible to gingerly traverse the heat
with a lemonade on 7th avenue handed
to you by a woman who speaks Danish
better than you ever will.
It is easy to rest in the grass under
a cherry tree, lifting belly and filling
the lungs with sweet air between kisses.
There really is such a thing as lightness
and ease, you've just got to work at it.
Joy can perk the brain into now, if you let it.
Please note: The wispy first steps of morning
make the sidewalk feel soft and goofy.
Welcome back, we've been waiting for you.
