The Path— free verse #NationalPoetryMonth

The Path
The Path at Rood Bridge Park by Jason Baskin

They felt like sunlight on my shoulder
before I turned around.
They walked in my direction
two adults
father and son
holding hands.
The son had Downs
his hair was growing back from chemo.
Their enjoyment of the day
the moment
the walk
the togetherness
radiated outward
touched me
patted me on the shoulder
kissed me on the head
assured me that there is
goodness here
that is
worth it.
Worth all of it.
