A Walk in the Afternoon (Random Thoughts Part II)



A walk down the street. Past cars, past houses and past flowers.

Rail tracks. Never used and yet still there.

Birds singing, dogs barking, children’s’ laughs of joy.

Men playing volleyball, seniors riding bikes.

Families in the grass on picnic towels. Shisha smoke and curry and pommes frites.

Girls in hijab swimming in the lake. In their regular clothes.

Wind blowing through the grass, planes taking off above my head.

Splashing of water, crunching of sand.

Fields of green and butterflies in white.

A walk in the afternoon.
