walking in Lincoln Park

beside Puget Sound

I stopped to read the dedications

on the park benches

and felt sad

so I stopped reading them.

 

when I die let me pass to ashes

quickly,

unmourned

 

life is transient,

life is eternal

but not for grief,

not for me,

not today.

 

40 minutes’ walk finished

endorphins kicked in

it felt good
