Norm with dog walking
an awkward title perhaps
but may present
a vision of patience
varied in shades..

our neighbor's dog
extraordinary not at all
relishes like others
daily sniffing exploration..
Norm with dog
seen tethered together..
control however
very hard to discern..

on certain streetcorners
with odors exploding
Norm with dog
share equally
decisions to move on..
some neighbors say
it's patience we find
life's lesson displayed..

patience has colors
shades of suffering..
yet on this walk
two carry a leash
joining senses of discovery..
we neighbors might see
brighter Lighter
shades of Patience...?
"Adopt the pace of nature:  her
secret is patience."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
