I took a different bus returning from work today and so I had to cross the park to reach home. Even if it was hot and all I needed was a bath–identically I’d like to go swimming–I wanted to walk and clear my mind.
Leaving the bustle of the street behind me, I slowed down my pace and let the light wind brush against my skin. It’s strange how some trees and twenty minutes in the park can bring peace to my mind.
Suddenly I stopped noticing the heat and the drops of sweat on my forehead and I focused on other stuff. A man and a woman were lying on a blue towel, tanning. He was looking up the sky, while she was face down, her hair in a bun and her shoulder blades red from the sun.
Then I walked on a small trail and as the wind blew a little stronger, yellow flowers fall from the trees and that is when I noticed the yellow trail before me. It was like one of those moments where time seems to slow down and you feel like you’re all alone in the whole world.
I’ll walk through tat park again, that’s for sure.
