Reflections ... A Stroll .... Prose Poem .....

Reflections, is a series of poems,
Of my random thoughts ...

Hot lazy summer afternoon,
Soothing air condition ride to the county park,
Kids on swings remind me of yester years, 
Families riding through the park on bikes and skates,
Family of four on bikes comes toward us,
Their not on the bike trail that's next to the walk trail, but who cares, as the tiny blonde hair girl with big blue eyes rings the bike bell for us to move out of their way, she laughs and yell hi in her tiny high pitched voice, as they streak by

Two bodies stroll slowly side by side,
In whispering voices, converse to one another,
Suddenly it dawns on me that this stroll is like so many others, but hadn't been taking in quite sometime,
Busy lives, different direction, rising children, has taken it toll on frequent strolls,
But on this day, we shall enjoy the turn back of time,
Our hands meet and greet, the same hands that meet many years ago,
But now has less flexibility, and aching joints,
But our love still flows through them, strong as ever

Fresh air, overflowing riverbanks next to walk walkway harness cover for lazy ducks and geese,
Ripples in the shoreline is from small fish dashing in and out of the weeds, that protect them from the roaming pry fish,
Wish of my fishing pole and two lounge chairs under the willow tree runs through my mind

A young couple quickly past us by while holding each other oh so tightly, they look as if were joined together at the hips,
A young love that reminds me of us many years ago, so into each other, we would walk right past the beautiful blooming flowers, missing the sight, missing their fragrance of life, because we were too consumed with the love that was blooming within,
But now, with many years of love and togetherness, we can walk slowly, because we understand that our love will always shine, always be there, and that the beautiful sights around us, enhance what we have inside for each other,
And no matter how fast we walk, time will still past us by,
But true love, will never leave us behind,
It will always walk in every step of our life's ...
