during this spring
of social distancing
i’m walking a lot

giving folks
a wide berth
and a smile

i’ve noticed lots of
encouraging chalk messages
on paths and sidewalks

with quotes
from Maya Angelou
and Mr. Rogers

this crisis
is making me think
about the paradox

that walking alone
can be the same as
walking together
