Just a Few Steps Off the Usual Path

We ran a weekend errand today
on the campus
where I teach a class
three days a week.

Three days every week
I dash from my car
to my classroom
and back again.

we took time to wander,
only a few feet from the parking lot,
down a winding trail.

I realize not every workplace
has a handy Botanical Garden
a stone's throw away.

But a lot of places
have things worth seeing
if we just take the time and effort.

Who knows the beauty
that surrounds us,
day after day?
