Did you feel it, handsome, young runner calling good morning as you floated over the path through the open space in this glorious morning sun?
Did you notice, laughing couple nodding hello as you shuffled along the gravel walk?
And you, focused, sweating, racing woman, never losing a beat, yet still finding breath for a fast “morning!” How about you? Were you aware?
I plugged in as you passed.
I swallowed your smiles,
inhaled the air you exhaled,
stepped into the power vibrating in your footprints,
merged with your joie de vivre,
and thanked God for the power in community.
