Poems from Walking – 24/10/20

There is a lake
in the park
where people sat.
Swans watched
and ducks trailed.
The children sped past
or hurled bread.
Night melted
and the sun shone.
Doves rested in a bush
and squirrels played in the shade.

Every day, a gathering of young skaters
with twirling teachers,
they skated and played
and when the time came
they packed their things
and went their ways.

Back to the wall
October’s question.

A hedgehog stopped
in the night.

An oil black crow
falling.

Heart of a dove
and two seagulls.

In the afternoon
the heron flies.

Running
with sunlight

fallen leaves
beside the fence

red trees
blocks of flats

A spindle moon.

~~~

Starting in the middle
with shapes.

Flying before opening
these eyes.

Smiling as one who is afraid.

~~~

The corner
beneath the table

The shadow
meets the ceiling

The sunshine
finding me.

After school
the children play.

The sky turns over
red and gold.

Lowered heads
tall trees.
