Adventures at the City Park

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

High 70's today

Today the weather is great. The sun is shining. It’s in the high 70's and warm enough to wear a pair of shorts.
The flowerbed got my attention first but now I have ventured to the city park.

Roadblock sign at entry

We have been told we can walk. There is a trail inside the park, but I am greeted with a sign blocking the entry which states the playground is closed. I drive around it and park my car.
There is only a handful of people here.
One is fishing. One is walking a dog.
There is a family with a mom, dad, and a little child wearing headphones taking a stroll down the path.
There are a couple people sitting in the shelter house and a little girl learning to fly a kite.
Geese are everywhere today but they seem quite content.

Nice to Breathe Fresh Air

Since I worked at home first, the sun is now starting its descent. The wind is a bit gusty so I venture back to car for my windbreaker.
Since it’s late today I am only walking around a small pond and not the complete trail.
It feels nice to breathe fresh air and get away from the homestead for a few moments.

Squirrels and Geese

I enjoy watching the squirrels, and observing the geese.
I wish I knew what the geese were talking about as I listen to their calls.
It seems like one alerts all the others and the chatter begins.
Some fly off in a group. Others sit together, but spread apart, with one in the middle.

Asking God to be With Me

This walk is definitely needed for exercise but it is a bit lonesome being by oneself.
Since I have no one else to talk with I ask for God to be by my side or send me an angel to keep me company.
I spend my walk reflecting on life and it’s beauty as I take pictures.

Super Pink Moon

Today’s venture is just .65 miles but it’s time to head for home.
There is a Super Pink Moon tonight. It is the largest full moon of 2020 and will be at its peak at 10:35 pm EST.
In any case, we all know what they say about full moons.
So I’m not taking any chances with coronavirus on everyone’s mind.
So until next time at the park.
