The Joys of Walking


For all those
who enjoy
the serene
outdoors …

It’s 7 pm, the weather is great!,

I put on my shoes, don’t wanna be late,

Grabbing my headphones, off I go,

It’s a beautiful place, for those who don’t know.

The fresh cool breeze and the lush green trees,

 join in the melody of the birds and bees,

playing out a symphony so scintillating,

You wouldn’t wanna miss it even if

someone’s waiting!

The wide open roads are a walker’s delight,

Feel safe as home, even late at night!

The pavements are all so very well maintained,

you can walk on them blind and not fall into a drain!

Observing people walk is an added bonus,

a sure give-away of their relationship status!

 The leisurely walk of young couples in love,

looking into each other’s eyes, walking hands in tow,

Hurried pace of couples touching 49,

hell bent on trimming their rotund waistlines!

Chattering bunch of girls you can hear from far

who come out to gossip or brag about their car,

 the rowdy gang of guys with football in hands,

looking for a playground with girls as fans!

By the time its time for me to go home,

I have exercised enough to feel every muscle and bone!

Throat all parched, sweat dripping from my face,

the feeling surpasses even..winning a race!

If there’s one thing I know I’m gonna miss about this place,

its walking on these roads with the wind on my face.

 serene: tranquil, calm, peaceful
rotund: rounded out or plump
