Everydayism, Connected to Simplicity | A Poem by G.S. Katz

walking my dog
same path everyday
would like to change routes
but she digs in and says no

every morning I see the same workers
they gather in front of the same building
then disperse to the buildings they maintain
“good morning” is all that needs to be said

as you get older you have to be grateful
for the everydayism you rejected in youth
the comfort of everyday tasks
the simplicity that is our personal connection

would have blasted me for writing this 30 years ago
maybe even 20
forced change is sometimes good
but am grateful for the everyday I can hold onto……

    Thanks Roy

    I’ve got a pointer, rottweiler. spaniel mix. 12 years old and stubborn as the day is long.
    That being said, she is the queen of the neighborhood and very sweet. Best companion ever.
