The Park

By Alandya Durand, age 17, Massachusetts

 

A duck
Would pass by
At times

Trees
Full of leaves
As an afro
Of hair

Grouped
As umbrellas
Of shade

Rows of
Emerald grass

Rows of
Verdant
Vibrant green

Divided
Almost equally

Which flowers
Are nestled with

They dance
With the grass
When the wind
Visits

Families
Go on picnics

Teeth showing
Eager eyes

Before
They indulge
In food

A girl
Bites into
A succulent
Watermelon

A stream
Of juice
Flows down
Her cheeks

Giggles
Grins
Grabs napkin

Few benches
Few feet away
From each other

A grandma
And grandson
Sit together

Laughing
She reminisces
About her youth

A myriad
Of memories
Visible as roots
Emerge from
Her eyes

The boy’s lips
Form a
Genuine smile
That can be read
From the tips

River
In the center
Sparkling

Still
But for ripples
That show up
Scarcely

When a
Minnow
No more
Than one inch
Springs

A dog
Panting
Tongue out
Running for
A Frisbee

His owner
Beams as
The companion
Returns

Pats his back
Throws again

A crack
From stepping
And splitting
A stick

A faint sound
Of a rock
From a
Gentle kick

By a man
Cap on
Hands in pockets
