Just To Be

Just to Be

A busy life,
And amidst it,
A silent park.
Childhood laughter,
Youthful giggles,
Echoes of time
Long gone by
pierce the silence
of an early morning.
Eroded and varnished
it remains in
time’s immortal spell.
Yet in a while
People old and young
trickle slowly in
Running and jogging
Meditating and reading
Just to forget,
Life’s myriad hardships,
and to lose,
Oneself in an
Eden of calmness.
Just to Be
..Just to Be..

I found a park near where I live. In the busy environment around, it was quite shocking to find a park which seems to have stood still in time. Only the wooden planks have eroded and broken a bit. But anyway.. I have been thinking of writing something about that place, and when I saw this prompt… I knew what I wanted to write about.
