Poem: No Day for a Picnic

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

"No Day For A Picnic"

While taking a drive
the glare from the sun
deceives her mind,
convincing her the day is warm.

Grabbing takeout from the drive-thru,
heading for the park
enjoying a mini picnic
in it’s glow.

But the sun lied,
she is shivering with each bite
pulling the hood of her coat up
feeling like it is forty degrees.

She finishes her quest
quickly consuming her meal,
rushing back to the car
turning on the heat.
