Observation from a Park

I sit for a second,

to watch the constant,

activity around me.

Joggers keep in step,

with blaring headphones.

Children screaming,

in delight as they descend slides.

Bike riders fly by,

on crooked paths;

maneuvering by,

distracted pedestrians.

Couples lean into each other,

walking and talking quietly;

reflecting upon a past conversation,

a declaration of love,

or plans for dinner.

I watch all these,

various activities,

from my own reposed state.
