Buddy Time

The Mornin’ Stroll…
through the still sleepin’ streets…
Neighbors blissfully unaware…
of the watchful eyes…
and and the all seein’ nose…
confirmin’…
that Order has survived…
another Dark Night…

Past the streets now…
and onto the sand…
the Reward…
for Community Service…
the Mornin’ Commune…
with Mother’s Nature…
and Poseidon’s Sea…

Walkin’ the Edge…
where Sea kisses Shore…
Porpoise and Pelican…
check both sides of the Waves…
and Gulls’ cries Summon…
the Flock…
There’s Bait for the Takin’…

The Light grows…
and the Clouds take on Colors…
that most will not see…
But the Man’s watchful eyes…
and the Dog’s all seein’ nose…
Revel in the Glory of Sunrise…
and it’s Attendant Cast…

A sip of Coffee…
feet movin’ together…
Side by Side…
two Friends confirm…
that Order has survived…
another Dark Night…
