It soon would be time to go
for a stroll, but, above all, really :
it was about struggling to accept
the inevitable  on a public bench,
freshly repainted,  and admiring,
nonetheless, the elegance
of the branches, the opulence of the green pearls
and the transparency of the leaves
(but how did it end like this?)

    1. It struck me the other day that I tend to assume that people sitting on public benches in the sun watching beautiful trees were not always necessarily happy but maybe reflecting about not so happy moments, maybe trying to work out where they were in their lives or trying to make big decisions. and there I am, thinking “(s)he looks so happy “. What do I know?
