THE SURPRISE OF THE DAY

One day follows another
and each brings its own joys,
and its own unique ordeals

a days’ skies may bring ample grays
or blue with burgeoning bright clouds
or mucky, view-blocking haze
over the most magnificent of bays

some days will find me far away
dwelling inland, flat
pedaling the town around
or walking each which way
to get place to place
just so needful work gets done

yesterday, a swift but mild sea breeze
threaded through my bay
and whispered through tall, droop-leafed trees
and I walked an unfamiliar, urban maze
falling short of where
the wished-for shore–
it was not where,
I hoped that it would be.

this, a day with haze, but ample sun
brings windy walking exploration
the shore is reached
a sand state beach.
a place to sit down,
then stroll–
renewal, restoration

but so far-flung
the walk I’d done,
I was at a loss
to see through
my day plan’s continuation.

Tomorrow a new day promises
another chance
to assemble things
in different combinations,
regardless of surprises
in unusual locations.
