Day of leaving
Red socks ahead in the series 3 to 2,
a fine breakfast of lox on Mikasa China,
all the bunnies and a kindred friend
hug me au revoir,
the luxury of a towncar ride to Logan,
a kiss at the airport
that spans a 21 years pilgrimage to this city of my heart.
A tear of gratefulness,
A tear of longing,
A tear of hope
and two tears for love.
So I move forward
from this soul adventure,
Lessons in my front pocket,
The city at my back,
Flying over Boston Harbor islands
tiny island like my memories old and new.
I leave healthier in body and mind
with direction and purpose,
Glowing in faith and confidence
“Joy is the essence of success” (Yogi Tea).
