In the Park

A gentle breeze
Blows my hair
Leaves swirl to the ground
Sun streams through the trees
Still there is shade
The heated air
Summer seems near
People enjoying the park
Babbling babies
The laughter of friends
Couples murmur conversationally
Along I sit
But not lonely
Today I am at peace
I know I’m loved
And cared for
I enjoy watching the scene
I’d love to spin around
and around
and around
My dress twirling out
Self consciousness constrains
My instinct
Instead I watch the kids
Reminiscing of more carefree days
A friend walks past
We smile and hug
Parting ways with just a word
Enjoying the beautiful day
Each in our own way
