at every turn

Today I saw a man living on the edge of danger.
He was smoking,
while wielding a gas weedeater,
as he leveled a patch of tall dry grass....

Today I saw a young mother making time stand still
as she crouched beside her baby in a stoller.
A little flock of Bantam beauty pecked and fluttered just beyond the fence.....

Today I saw row upon green row of bedding plants.
Infant flowers.
A thousand summer gardens all in a row.....

Today I drove down unfamiliar streets.
I let the car choose the path home.
I was surprised at every turn.
