The poetic city: Maybe It’s the Little Things 8/13/17

Maybe It’s the Little Things     8/13/17 
 
Maybe it’s the little things
that keep us anchored
as the pressures mount 
from day-to-day and
threaten to send us 
flying in all directions.
 
It could be the sight of
of school children crossing
the street holding hands; or
the joking laughter of friends…
the dog’s joy on his daily walk
or the simple kindness of a stranger.
 
It’s the big things that determine
the circumstances with which
we must contend; but it may be
the little things that matter most
in the end.
