The Sidewalk
















The Sidewalk
A ribbon tied
around our town,

A strangled root’s
defiant frown,

A canvas
for my shadow.
A skating rink
for skipping rocks,

A way to measure
city blocks,

A path from me
to you.

    Beauty is always in the beholder, isn’t it, Liz? You’ve added images that are so true, like the rock skipping I’ve done with my grandson, and the canvas for shadows where I’ve played with a granddaughter. Lovely!
