Group Poems

“living well”

The trees are very still even though there is a breeze
warm sunshine and peaceful atmosphere
bees chatting to daises
patter of dogs claws
murmur of voices
rough stone
soft wood chip
orange delight dancing free
the air is warm
the Saturday market, I am here with good friends
All is well.

A group poem by Lal, Myra, Sheila & Yvonne.

“gentle birdsong”

Gentle birdsong, gentle footsteps
Sounds, bees buzzing, birds singing
Flowers yellow, blue, red, purple, warmth, bustle, noise, traffic
Yellow Yarrow gentle waving
People young and old sitting, some enjoying company, some alone
Silence broken by sound of birds and ducks
and the train going over the viaduct
The perfume of the herbs mixed with the smell of food
Warmth on my back, then gentle breeze
bringing the smell of herbs as you brush by
The colours of the clothes of the people
Radio, fast a rapid, a voices mumbling
Teenagers chat while topping up their tan
and show off their chests
while drinking in the sun.
Two red admirals play tag in the flowers
While a cabbage white flutters
from bush to bush.
Old wooden hoardings at the edge of the park
brightened by a rainbow
So are now not so stark
The heat from the sun and the noise of the background
intermingled with bird singing.
River flowing looks so cool, feel like a paddle
Wish I had a pool.
