An attempt to capture it…

Follow-up to Ah, such a Perfect Day… from Into the Flame

A poem I wrote after this day which I originally didn't think much of, but What The Hell. Its been a while since I posted a decent-length poem, so here it is.

Hyde Park

The sun— a warm globe
of happily received
rays, reflected on
multiple ripples.

Prickly grass, dry
beneath us, rough
against exposed skin.
We sit, accumulating company.

Circular: the drum,
our group, the lake,
your birthday cake.
Eighteen—another year flown by.

Drum beats, tempo
peaks and voices rise,
billowing beneath
coloured kites flying high.

We cannot leave; we
magnetise and meet
eyes, laughing as we sing
meaningless philosophies.
