Turn the Corner

  

You can walk the same path

day in 

and day out.

You know where

the pavement cracks,

where the curb bends.

You can know 

each block and house

by drab color,

by yard, 

by name.

You can taste 

the bland familiarity of it all

and then– one day–

Turn the corner

and be surprised 

by a blooming lilac 

that fills you.
