People Walking Through Town

People Walking Through Town

A Poem by Sarah Hobbit

Grandmother looking after-

  fast, happy, pouty grandchildren.

  giving the parent a welcome day off


Couple, couple, young, old,

  walking hand in hand


Pregnant women waiting

  and looking after a precious child

  yet to come into this world


Single man, looking for love

  or buying her a gift


Skater boys roll past the pretty girls-

  who shop with their cold legs,

  laugh, giggle, flirt, and enjoy friends company


Homeless wandering, sitting playing music so well

  in their dirty clothes and long beard


Worker on their lunch break,

  eating as they walk on their way

  to look quickly at some shops


Seeing people of all Ages, Relationships,

  Ethnicity, and Clothes.

I like it. I can picture all of the people that you mentioned. A brief verbal photograph of the people all around us. Well done.

I liked it. A view of what goes on in downtown of a city.

Love the way you capture the different lives of people, how people just
get on with it, living in your own world, not thinking grass is greener etc, best way.
Nice :)

I like the description of people in the poem. I like people watching. I was station throughout the world. Everybody had a plan of a sort and the world seem to keep on moving. I enjoyed the poem. Thank you for the excellent poem.
