A Little Bit of Sunshine

RMNPA perfect day in Rocky Mountain National Park, CO



After a long work night

Battling my instincts

To fall asleep at the wheel

Or run through the red light


No I can’t hit the bed yet

It’s friday still


School drop

And chores, endless chores

Milk’s run out

And yes apples,

Can’t do without those damn apples.


I prowl around

In a half daze

Dumping stuff

In my recyclable cloth bag

Green is my middle name


 Then disaster strikes

At the checkout counter

With all my effects on the floor

On display for the world

To see and ridicule


And just when I was  ready

To pitch and scram

Before the tears sprout

Like from a ruptured dam

I felt a gentle tap on my arm


It was the grocery clerk


Always in attendance

With a warm smile on her face

I sighed with relief

Everything will be fine

Because of little Ms. Sunshine
