NaPoWriMo Evidence

Evidence

 

There, walking in the evening

beneath the sky of pale blue

along the grey sidewalk

lined with newly mowed lawns,

I remember the chatter

in the afternoon shadow

just outside my window

“I can reach it”

“I can reach it”

laughter, squeals, children’s dares

jump, ride, dare, hide

spring brings children

running, growing, sharing, throwing

and aware, in the dare,

beneath the cherry tree blossoms,

of their own new sprouting, shouting:

“I can reach it”

“I can reach it”

And I now see the deed

of pink blossoms sprinkled

along the grey sidewalk

beneath the sky of pale blue,

There, walking in the evening.
