Vera Rosina sonnet

A Lakeside walk

As today I did start thinking
Something deep inside me did ring
And so this thought to me did bring
As me I heard the song birds sing

A whisper came into my mind
Why do you not, my friend unwind
When someone walks he often finds
That life can be so very kind

And so I walked down to the lake
So nice it was to take a break
Tomorrow my good wife I’ll take
We’ll go there just for health’s own sake

To stretch one’s legs is very grand
When you try it you’ll understand

G'day Peter … how water, walking, nature, eases our mind is amazing. It makes us feel like a piece in nature's jigsaw puzzle - thank you Peter - Lindsay

Peter, I read your comment to Heidi, and the poem makes so much sense now. I had a bad fall, tore my ACL and my miniscus, and bruised my bone. I was in a wheelchair for a month, and on a walker for about another month. I was afraid to let go. My FEAR kept me from walking. I was so afraid of another FALL. I am so glad you have your walk back my friend. Nice poem, and I love lake walks too.

Hi Caren I can relate to what you went through. In the last year I have had about six falls which pisses me off. I was on to weight lifting walking for miles and riding a healtlh machine. Vera gets very worried for me and goes to pieces when I talk about walking, But I took a chance yesterday. Thank you, my friend for your kind comments....peter

Hi Heidi I had a fall a while back and It was so painful I could not walk. Yesterday I had a go at walking and I quite enjoyed it. I have always been fit and I hated being out of action. Thank you for your kind comments, my friend....Peter

an ordinary day becomes glorious when you walk and view what is there, and with someone is even nice enjoyed ElsaRosee
