Getting Along

Photo and words by Mark Renz

There's more to getting along
than just keeping our distance
from one another
Getting along means being considerate
of the habitats and habits
of all life forms
with feathers, scales, skin or bark
Getting along means doing without
some of life's niceties
if it means giving others a fair chance
to get along with us as well
