route

shortcuts are
exhilarating
but these days
i’d rather take
the long way
the slow way

a step at a time
in the general direction
of my destination,
but not too direct

it is good to
stray a little
from the shortest
distance between
point A and point B

there are fruit
trees and flowers
to see, strangers
to be made into
neighbors

i may meander
but i am not
off-course;
the meandering
is part of the path.
