One, slow, deep inhale per Wave —
In through the nose,
Out the mouth. Slow!
Another, full inhale with another Wave.
Pour your tai chi ocean from foot to foot,
breathe-up from your feet. Listen!
A woman wearing a pink ball cap
is walking behind a mature German Shepard
who is unleashed. Watch!
The iconic guard-dog turns to look at me,
holding eye contact for an instant then turns away
deciding not to attack. Me!
I’m no threat waving hands
like clouds under a bright, blue sky
in our riverside park!
