Poem a Day 2015 #23 – Park Bench

Poem number 23 for April 2015. Written on a park bench near my house.

Park Bench

in the morning

a fitness group meets

dump their drink bottles

compete for best body image


in the afternoon

a woman sits

talks to her dead husband

weeps for absent children


in the evening

a couple connect

share each other’s warmth

make promises they won’t keep


at night

a man sleeps

hides his blankets

under the trailing hibiscus
