Life Can Be So Simple

Life can be so simple and delightful
in certain seasons.
I cherish
putting on my walking shoes,
taking a walk,
watching the sky turn colors,
returning home,
making oat cakes,
reading a book.
Who made my shoes, my denim jacket,
my belt, socks, underwear? Someone
laboring over a sewing machine in a hot climate.
I hope they too get to enjoy
a walk, a sunset, oat cakes, a good book.
