Days of Freedom Reminded

(Written during my August visit to DC, forgotten about, and found again)

A morning free a day

a few days free from the constant

rumble so deafening the rumble

of fans so deafening to the mind not

able to think to the ears not able

to hear.

Exploring today among alabaster and

pillars that remind me of the freedoms

delegated to all within these borders

I am calmed down if only for a

few days with the fact that freedom

has granted me the ability to have

a home that soon will be dry

and back to activity.

The relaxation on a shaded

bench overlooking a National pool

as gentle and still as the breezes blowing

my way I observe many people of

many races hearing many tongues

of many lands some strolling

separate some holding hands

all here to celebrate

the gifts honoring freedom

reminding of its great given beauty

as well as its

respectful

essential

demands.
