This is a feel good poem I wrote last summer after attending a music concert in the park. It reminds us to soak up every last glimmer of a moment before it has passed into darkness. I hope you all are having a wonderful, relaxing weekend 🙂
Sitting in a chair on a terraced slope
overlooking Mingus Park –
sun setting in the background,
seagulls screech, children laugh,
eyes glimmer their brightest before dark.
A golden film gilds feathers, faces,
blade of grass, water fountain and cement surface.
All is animated, each spark felt,
music speaks of moments once gone
but captured now.
Twilight claims my shadow
and leaves it tangled in a mass
next to all the lounging bodies
splayed out across the grass.
Bats flutter sporadically overhead,
nabbing mosquitoes on the fly
that would otherwise feast on my blood –
I envy their view from the sky.
A clear canopy of stars seem so much closer
in the middle of melodic meditation.
Sounds carry the lightness of the sun
reflecting life in every decibel –
the universe gathers inspiration.
