Exploring the poetry of everyday life

Goodness At the Grocery Store

Nourishment in many forms
Stories appear that please my soul
Kindness offered without charge
At my local grocery store

Monday specials called to me
I headed out with handy walker
Whose compartment’s storage space
Has room for Lean Cuisine

Six-box limit I well know
And how to pack groceries myself
I skillfully rearrange my food
After checking out

The bagger that day newly hired
Packing while I paid my bill
Had ideas of his own
Of just how things should go

When I stopped to do my thing
Repacking groceries properly
I saw amazed his handiwork
Surely had done the job for me

It was too late to go back
To thank this wonderful young man
I hope he felt the joy I found
Exchanged in his creative gift

Haiku: Medium of Exchange

White plume of airplane
Rising high in a blue sky
Great day to travel

I have known such days
Packed with joyful adventure
Cup filled to the brim

Now I sip coffee
Watching flights from my window
Filled with gratitude
