A Walk In The Park

This old wood bench feels splintered as does the old gentleman beside me. Strong enough to hold us both however in our conversation as afternoon fades. Cannot turn away from the kindness in his eyes as I gently stroke his craggy face. I crush a handful of fragrant flowers and offer them to my sweet grandfather. written by Deb Wilson for Sense Of Touch contest 9/1/2015
