Trees whispered to each other
bees hummed about their work
birds sang in harmony
with children's voices
blending joy and youth.
A passing crisp packet
littered the park
dancing. Dandelions
just passed the time.
Distant traffic exhales
exhaust fumes carrying
horns of impatience.
Does wind blow faster
beside emergency vehicles?
Washing dries on garden lines.
Lunchtime fish and chip shops
call me. Am I hungry?
Somewhere a dog barks
and I'm still trying
to catch the wind
in a spotted handerchief.
