A Civic Nature

Construction siteDriving down the road
I see new construction
at the business park
near where Jason worked.
Or...
Going to visit family,
I see the road is all torn up
and construction is in full force
Or...
I read an article in the news
about a new restaurant
going into a development
along the river
And...
I think to myself
If Jason were still alive
I'd know all about these
before I saw them.
He'd have let us know
about the road construction
in the family's neighborhood
as well as ours,
anything that might disturb our day.
That's how he was.
He loved to track road construction
and new major building projects
around the county.
It was part of his civic nature.
Another piece missed,
and a few more tears shed.
