Ambling Tour
Sandals set to stroll
the sun warmed deck
over rolling seas
Rhythm keeps my balance
as the swaying lulls
my senses
Morning joggers pass
Sneakers and spandex
Purposeful motions
of health and vigor
compete with my
Alerted by my sense
of pride and recent
dietary choices,
my feet relent and quicken
adding force to speed,
as wind to waves
Four times, clockwise,
a mile in length and time
satisfies my dignity
til lunch, with perhaps
another tour around
