toes ran free from socks
shins bared their flanks
shoulders undressed their cheeks
	to receive warmth’s kisses

Swans passed on their water-fed passage.

Yes, nodded heads in the flowerbeds,
this is summer sunshine 
		in Regent’s Park. 

13 – 14 July, 2013

Enjoy the blissful summer weather, if you’re circa London-towne. Drink water; wear a hat; put on sunblock. Let your toes and shins and shoulders enjoy the sunshine. The animals and plants are all smiling at us humans, “See, they’ve finally realised that being in a park is quite the place to be.”

Put away your laptop or phone, and simply sit under a tree.

That is poetry enough.

If you enjoyed the above, preview my first volume of poetry, SHINING IN BRIGHTNESS. It was released earlier this year and is available via blurb.co.uk

I tweet, though less so on sunny days when I am under trees or traipsing through London’s parks. Follow me as @BeadedQuill.
