On an early morning walk

To the neighborhood bakery

Fresh air, a light breeze

A misty sprinkling of raindrops


The thought of fresh-baked, warm pan de sal

Butter melting on top

A hot cup of coffee waiting at home

For breakfast.


Who would have thought?

A mundane act

A short stroll

Away from the isolation of four walls.


Who would have thought?

Such a simple act

Could bring such

An arising of so much joy.


A feeling of grace

Of sanctity and sacredness…

All is good. All will be well.


From Poems in the Time of Co-vid 19.
