Contentment

Balancing herself on a cane
she bends down to remove
a pebble from her shoe
stands, adjust her scarf,
and resumes her walk
The air 61 degrees cool under cloudy sky.

She walks slow with slight sway
body straight, her eyes look far in the horizon

She answers good morning
with a smile as I pass and greet her.

Her voice sounds content.
