    City Slowly Wakes

    I'm retired now, but I worked downtown for over 25 years. That's what I always think of, going to work in the morning. In the summer, the sun is already up, but in the winter, it's just starting to get light. You walk past the early morning eateries and you smell the aroma of coffee coming from them. You walk past the stores and look in the windows. I did that for many years. It's just your everyday morning downtown.

    I enjoyed working downtown. I would go out on my lunch hour and get something to eat or shop. I would go to the post office, the library. I got a lot of exercise, too, walking around downtown.

    Maybe next time I'll have to write a poem about afternoon lunch hour.
