A Walk In The Park

A Walk In The Park

A Poem by Lisa C
"

Hope you walk along with me as grass becomes greener somehow skies bluer with white cotton wool clouds

"

The sun beats down warming my skin
bringing cheer to this dull world
summer is here in all her glory
sunny days and warm nights
bringing barbecues and parties
(pre lockdown, of course)

brightly coloured flowers bow their heads
in worship to that greater being in the sky
grass becomes greener somehow
skies bluer with white cotton wool clouds
the feel of silken breeze
whispering over heated skin is bliss

a stray sunbeam dazzles my eyes
as a stronger gust of wind rustles leaves
making the sunlight appear to dance
with the shadows
sounds of children laughing, having fun
and birds in the trees, calling to each other
this is summer at its finest

I sit amidst this splendour
alone on a park bench
as people walk by
they don’t see me, busy as they are
with their phones and music
this world can be a lonely one
for someone with a disability

sometimes you feel
overlooked and forgotten
until one person catches your eye
and smiles, making you feel better
your mouth stretches
into an answering smile
not so lonely after all

I agree dear Lisa. All of us need to feel, we are not alone.
"sometimes you feel
overlooked and forgotten
until one person catches your eye
and smiles, making you feel better
your mouth stretches
into an answering smile
not so lonely after all"
I loved the above lines. I go daily to the park and I befriended many. Good to talk and maybe play a game of Chess. Thank you for sharing the amazing poetry and your thoughts.
