london joy, suffolk joy

When I booked tickets
for me and my older son
to visit England, I was clear
that I wanted a picture like this:
my friend Dana and I
right here.

When I booked tickets
for me and my older son
to visit England, I was not at all clear
that I’d find what I really wanted
while wandering footpaths in
the Suffolk countryside.

wandering companions

What I found in Suffolk need not–
no, cannot–be captured in words,
so that London joy (freeing myself from
the struggle of seeking words
to match the experience)
is added to the Suffolk joy (of having
found what I wanted
simply wandering
along Suffolk
footpaths).
