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