Poetry: Evening Walk


EVENING WALK

In an evening walk
I’ll calculate my next move
Coordinate my conversations
Consider the risks
Conceive inspiration

An evening walk will
Tidy my head
Warm my heart
Make my nose run

Red scarf flies like a flag
Of freedom and life
Wrapped around me
Coiled across my mouth
That’s speaking only fog

Under the street lights
I travel across time
The sidewalk is my path
Street signs guide me

The alleyway home
Lights the runway
Motion detection working
At every gate
In MOTION I am

Night walking

*a favorite poem from 2012

  1. I loved this poem the first time I heard your read it and love it now. The red scarf is a powerful image. Thanks for posting this drop of sweetness. Susan C-F.
