The “Good Morning” People

park“A Day in the Life”

Walking before 9:00
meeting all the “Good Morning” people,
joggers, walkers, some city workers,
and a bum on a bench.

The wind this morning
is blowing across the water,
creating a soothing ripple effect,
refreshing my senses –
the sun is bright yellow-white radiating.

It feels good to be here.

Yet another person
with a dog
smiles and says, “Good morning.”

We’re in the “real morning”,
the silence, the smiles, and the wind
are singing in harmony.

That’s the feeling
One of tranquility –
No effort.

At 9:00 however,
they all disappear somewhere.

I walk past
an unsmiling, somber man
with dark glasses
wearing a mask.

My dark glasses,
I take out of their case,
but I keep ready
with a smile.
