no harm no alarm

eventually get somewhere

time

relevance

only if you are going there

today ,

i see perfection

everywhere

quite...

astounding

looking out

from within

thick glass

protecting me from all of you

simon & garfunkel playing

perfectly

sounds of silence

gentle sweeping

in my background

people outward

gazing

roaming

giraffes and buffalo

a mosaic steeple watching over me

and all of them

saint or santa

doesn't matter

perfectly tarnished

street

walkers workers

day glo

in a tall buildings shadow

glass concrete

a couple sitting

greying together

a conversation had many times before

miss skinny jeans

catches everyone's eyes

food at noon just fuel

fooling the brain

sidewalk closed

cross without looking

striders

law abiders

latest nikes

a rules breaker

slow stroll

junior confined

enjoying the ride

pony tails and boots

canes pains

wobblers wigglers

chug-a-luggers

shirts n ties uniforms of this beat

tilting at awnings

sun

causing me to move

escorting me out

of my groove

hard work done

celebrated

duly noted

see ya another day -

Songs will do that. This is a good one! You are a prolific poet, my man. Particularly like the 'no harm' kick off.

"Take my arms that I might reach you" But my words, like silent raindrops fell And echoed In the wells of silence.
