Dimming of the Day

What a perfect end
To a  perfect day
With my perfect dog
Sitting on my feet
As we gaze outside
Toward the shiny lake
And the quiet light
Says good night
Good night

Daily Exercise

I’m going to walk 
As far as I can
As briskly as I like
Until I run into a crowd
Of people playing cards
At picnic tables
Sitting at a distance
Over-eager in their 
Pursuit of fun
Their need for companionship
And then I’ll turn 
At a quickened pace
To the safety
Of my home

14 Weeks in Lockdown

This was the week 
My dreams 
Turned to Covid-19
In one I showed up at the airport
But had forgotten to pack a mask
No store in the terminal sold one
In another dream the people I was talking with
(Perhaps about a new business opportunity at the airport)
Stood     really      far        away
