Hair cut, shave and a shower
Crisp tee shirt and a fresh pair of faded Levi’s
Dried by the sun on an outside washing line.
You’re in a pair of flip flops, walking down the road
Under a candy floss blue and white sky,
Listening to the banter, toward a local stadium.
Sat edgily back in a tip up seat
Basking in the warm sunshine,
Midst familiar faces, you’re speechless.
As the two teams run out
On to a beautiful carpet of shaded green stripes
To tumultuous applause.
Demanding those little hairs
On the back of your neck
Stand to attention and your pulse race…now.
Yep. Marcus Aurelus of Roma had it about right
“Very little is needed to make a happy life”
