Day 59: Air

The air, the old wives say

Fresh, clean air. It helps the children

to run around.

It has health benefits.

She’s never really

bought into that.

Her pursuits are all

better suited to the space between the covers of a book

than to the spaces that


from horizon

to horizon-

where the dome of the sky is the ceiling

and the Earth holds her children


But the little ones

teach her in more

ways than one, and their youthful games

and a breath of spring air

-or at least air that’s trying to be spring-

does her more good than

she could ever admit.
