View Before Lunch


View Before Lunch


A kid

on a swing

an old

couple tai chiing ..

A young

mum pushing

a pram ..

While a father

and somebodies

son fly

a kite together

in the distance ..

On one

of those three

green hills,


the valley below ..

But as much

as I enjoy people

watching ..

I must not be

late home for lunch ..

              Who's watching who, I thought.

                    This morning I saw a man feeding Seagulls from out of his hand. Thought that to be a bit risky. 10-15 flying above his head and as he raised his hand one would swoop in to take the morsel.
                    Great poem of observation. I believe you've coined a new word "tai chiing." - Phil A.

                    • Neville

                      There is danger in the skies .. I have noted it my self .. thanks for appreciating my neogilism Phil .. AGT's Neville

                      • MendedFences27

                        LOL . . . Neologism? A neogilism would be a new kind of ( fish? ) Sometimes , a freshly coined word can add emphasis to a poem.

                        I might think I see someone reminiscing, but I could be wrong. If it is, it's beautiful. And if it isn't, it's still beautiful.

                        • Neville

                          You have never been wrong yet Bella .. I doubt you got it in you .. Kindest of Regards & huge thanks as always .. Neville

                          Maybe 'those were the days" Neville. Such strange days can be with us now so always look on the good side of life and enjoy your lunch.
                          I'll meet you in the pub for lunch and a pint soon.
