When I Look Up, I Trip Over Things

It took Piper and I an hour and a half to walk three blocks.  It was a great three blocks, though.  I had the time to move at her pace, which requires the following pauses:

1. Counting all public benches.

2. Sitting on all public benches to assess their comfiness (note: cement benches all feel the same).

3. Sitting on all public benches and letting the sun shine on your face at different angles (note: city buildings block the sunlight from some benches).

4. Choosing your favorite cherry blossom tree (note: cherry blossoms next to public benches with ample sunlight win).

5. Smelling all cherry blossoms  (note: cherry blossoms don’t actually smell much, but you still need to smell every single one).

6. Touching, leaning against, exploring anything shiny.

7. Forgetting that you actually have a destination.

8. Realizing that Piper is ready for the poetry of Ani.

When I look around
I think this, this is good enough
and I try to laugh
at whatever life brings
cuz when I look down
I miss all the good stuff
and when I look up
I just trip over things
