Meandering

Today I went meandering through the store,
                   
I went to see what I could see.
                                     
I needed to get out before I went stir crazy,
                     
the house is closing in on me.
                                         
I went meandering slowly down each aisle,
                     
I said hello to a worker and to another shopper.
               
I found it to be most enjoyable,
                                     
since as a rule I would run in and out in a flash.
               
Maybe staying inside the house for months,
                     
has now taught me how to shop.
                                     
Just take your time and say hello,
                                   
as you go meandering down each aisle.

Paula, congratulations for your win! For centuries we have met at the marketplace buying, meeting, greeting and sharing the latest gossip, er, news?! You have captured that experience perfectly and showed how we need this experience and each other even more as we go through the pandemic chaos! Nice write. Blessings on your meandering - especially through flower stores!

I find it strange that people I don't know salute me on my way to church and shopping. Loved how you used the "meandering" way.

I think these hard times has taught us how important it it to meander and say hello to those we meet, Many lead solitary lives, we need to make the effort for their sake and ours, Well said dear friend, hugs and kisses xo

Love this take on meandering around the supermarket. I tend to go slowly around the fridges, it's one place where you can cool off...Delice
