Giving his new teammate a fist bump seemed to be the perfect greeting
Relaxed yet said, “I feel you, my brother.”
Except the next person came up and started a whole ritual
Exchanging high fives, bows, spins, hops and ended with a modified Cossack Dance
That’s when it dawned on him that maybe he didn’t know how to …
Standing in front of the mirror, he feels vulnerable
Until he starts the process of putting on his armor
It’s part the ritual and part the layers of protection.
That makes him feel invulnerable, especially with the addition of the power tie.
Silently the stars witnessed Dave’s accomplishment
He lit the lights on the old apple tree
It would complete the ritual set in motion fifty years ago
No one knew the reason why it was so important to Dave
Everyone did enjoy the fruit of his labor
