the mysterious path

this path
mysteriously
wide and clear
except for new-fallen snow

how did it come to be?

the neighbors
on either side
know
how it appeared
in front of
their houses
and
mine

the mailman
probably knows
or suspects--
after all
he's now delivering mail
to someone besides me
at this address

i know
in so many
little
and
big
ways
including this path

i'm not alone
no more struggling
to clear a trickle of a path

instead i'm out with camera
he's out with shovel
he--better known to some as mike
to me as beloved husband

he came back early
 from his short time
 in cinci
so i would not be
snowed in
alone
like last year

beloved
husband
mine

happy sigh

  1. Hi Beth, I know you are so pleased to have your hubby home with you --especially in times of bad weather. George is really good to scrape and clean our driveway and sidewalks.... Thank God for our MEN.
    Hugs,
    Betsy

  4. O, what a sweet hubby...I take it he helps others with their pathways too...we had a neighbor in our old neighborhood who always got up at the crack of first light to crank up his snowblower and "do" our driveway so we could get out to work...after that, he'd run the entire length of sidewalk on each side of the block.
