Seclude spot on hill, stroll with stick to top;
Short serpentine slope, seek shelter to stop.
Vantage view to rest, embrace by green lush;
In love with the park, breath away with blush.
Shy after sunset, leaves from raintree fold;
At sunrise, crowns and canopies, unfold.
Old heritage stood for years near the lake;
Paddle, jungle hike or walk for health sake.
Leisure invigorates, caught by fast rain;
Rescue came, wade through slippery mud lane.
Shower was short-lived and hassle as brief;
Lives like falling leaves, and most end in grief.
Wander and wonder, roam in comfort zone;
Tone muscles and bones, my confine was known.
Often poetry comes to me in my contemplative walk; they are like air, flow in uninvited.
I enjoy my exercises during these short walk with Nature. The family usually know where to find me, in case help is needed. I prefer to chose sites with seats, shelter and toilets.
of course, I have read on the topic in order to expand my verses. I have been to MacRitchie Reservoir park many times over the years. However, the distance I covered gets shorter each visit due to my knees. I need to sit and rest to continue.
The pictures are all copied-pasted from the web with appreciation to their owners. Lately, the computer demanded a lot to download my own pictures, and the e skill defied me.
