Suburban Wilderness Walk

We step outside this brisk, damp morning,
Amidst the crisp atmosphere.
The scent of floral shrubberies fill the air
Enhanced by the grey sky
Hear the faint sound of the distant roaring river.

Passerby’s amuse
Most remain focused
On their route.
Some pause briefly before rushing on,
Others stroll leisurely.

As for my dog and I
We absorb the scents
Notice the shrubs
Avoid the puddles
And enjoy the silent companionship.

It is early
We have recently awoken
And appear as such
While walking around our neighborhood
Our suburban wilderness.
