The Village

What if the Big City

looming ahead

is but a little village

with a butcher & a baker

& a candle-stick maker?


What if the maze of elevators

& subways

& bustling, crowded footpaths

are actually cobble-stoned streets

and side-walks with a few friendly faces?


What if all is not as it appears

& is not, by nature,

as scary & unmanageable

as the mind might see it?


What if I DECIDE it is but

the village?



Then I think I can walk toward it

with even a spring in my step!
