A Leisurely Walk...

A leisurely walk on the meandering trail
alongside the lake overlooking the Blueberry farm
exchanging a smile with the passers-by
as the gentle autumn sun plays hide and seek
among the stately pines and oaks
the red, yellow, maple leaves with a touch of sap green
listening to the noisy chickadees, the chirping song sparrows
watching the Mallards swim in the waters that abound
in fish and algae, as the dragonflies hover
over the long woody branch
where the blue heron sits pensive-
patiently waiting, to swoop down swiftly;
the catch he’d take for his fledglings  
in the tall grasses hidden from predators’ sight…
The ruminant relish
disturbed by the earth-shattering jarring honk
of a speeding car on the highway
abruptly ended
as a free-flowing river choked
with the debris and garbage of civilization.
