Sunday Morning

felix running 2

Felix

Up with the sun, we slip quietly

from the house

from responsibility

 

careful to not disturb the others and have them intrude

 

Anxious he waits by the door

Eager to run free

 

Explore

 

He loves the beach and the underbrush. He rolls happily in the cool green grass. He loves being free. He’s five now, not an impetuous puppy.

 

Patiently he waits for me

to catch up

to acknowledge

 

before darting off again.

 

When did that happen, I wonder

Just yesterday he was wild and unheeding.

 

Sunday morning belongs to us. 

 

I have no other purpose but to watch him delight in the world.

 

Undistracted, my mind wanders

Thoughts float free and interact with each other

 

but not with me

 

I follow him and I am free
