MS (4/27/59 / Chandigarh, India)

Morning Walk

I walk out
Of the glass doors
Still sipping
The coffee cup
Half full of green tea

The other hand holds
Assorted nuts
I dropp a few in
My mouth
Crunching and chewing
Savoring the nutty taste.

I take a few steps uphill
I stop and gaze
At the lake
My feet crumbling the
Soft carpet of fall leaves.

I finish the tea
Draw my scarf closer to the face
I feel the wind kiss my nose, cheeks, ear lobes
I pull my green sweater over my hands
Drop the cup and walk faster

In twenty minutes, I have
Done a mile or so
And return the spa
For my treatment
The walk has cleared my head
