Sammi’s Weekender #246 (saunter)

Give a little click on ‘saunter’ to fly on over to Sammi’s blog and read more words of wonder.

Now Dance

I can almost see in my memory
when mother was proud of me
for those first sobering steps,
my cheerful run. Later,
I saw and heard mine;
Billy, then Steven, finally
Julie taking first frantic steps of life,
another charge without
casual saunter. We learn
to run, then we slow down.


Look both ways as we walk, run, or saunter through life.
Mind the gaps, do the best you can, and have fun.
It’s a one-way ticket.

And now, a 1980s fun rock as Dire Straits teaches us about the “Walk Of Life.” (Hilarious)

  1. What a wonderful take on the prompt, Bill. How true it is that we start off at a run (I know my mother laments that I did!0 I took a two-hour saunter in yesterday’s crisp air. Was so nice. Surprised I waited until this morning to write something completely far away from said walk!
    Love the Dire Straits…

    1. Thank you Dale. Happy Monday. Later this week it is supposed to get real cold (for us) and probably rain, meaning ice. Raining today, but not o cold, so I may do a 90 minute saunter.

      Glad you like the the video. Kind of says it for me. 🙂
