It started out a quiet day at my abode
from where I did wander.
All I had to do was turn around
take a winding walk
over trails of chum now deceased.
Finding a family gathering
stopping to enjoy some koi with them
oh no…just the weary, persistent salmon.
Leaving this assemblage
I find my attention drawn by other gatherings
by the evidence left behind
and other happenings big and small.
