an ode to minneapolis

from lake harriet to calhoun,

to stone arch and mill city,

nothing about this city is ordinary.

bikers bike the trails,

runners inhale and exhale,

walkers steadily proceed,

a place where lovers of life live

is a place for me.

new cafes, shops, and restaurants

are full of creative people.

when the snow melts,

and the kids come out,

the trees turn green in happiness.

mothers gasp at yet another

grass or ice cream stain

on the clothes of their children,

but it’s summer,

and those accidents are quickly forgiven.

ask anyone and they’ll say,

this place is like no where else.

a place where city and nature meet,

minneapolis is a place

no other cities beat.
