Many to One

Downtown Dayton -- old building well painted with tall windows on two stories.

Daily Note

Every day, a photograph, a poem. Downtown Dayton includes a lovely main street of old buildings filled with restaurants and art galleries and more. It’s clean and friendly and quaint. I imagine street fairs and community events fill the streets with community gatherings of joy and celebration. Just like in the big city the parks and side streets fill with bizarres and art fairs and small neighborhood gatherings. It is America– across mountains, through fields, and over streams: out of many, one. One nation. “E pluribus unum”– let’s remember that! [other Dayton posts]

Many to One

Small town main street
Big city downtown beat
oh majestic mountain peaks
and tumbling fresh water creeks
city lights sparkle in lively streets
“E pluribus unum” is what each speaks
America votes: our freedoms to keep.
