BRISK WALK – A poem by Jean Kay

For day 13 of National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWriMo) “Your prompt for today is simply to take a walk. Make notes — mental or otherwise — on what you see on your walk, and incorporate these notes into your poem.” Here is the poem I wrote this morning.


An avenue of hot pink magnolia

is awe inspiring to me,

huge, magnificent flowers

blooming on every tree.

A flock of about fifty Pine Siskins

in treetops chattering away.

I love watching them at our feeder

and wonder if they’re here to stay.

Daffodils are still standing tall

for another week or two,

they’ll die off then so summer plants

can have their season too.

Rose bushes are now in full leaf,

no sign of buds forming yet.

They know it’s not their time to bloom.

I hope my planters don’t get too wet.

Freshly mowed, bright green lawns

have been lapping up spring rain,

they give off a pleasing fragrance

and will need to be cut soon again.

A completely grey sky this morning,

high cloud cover, chill in the air.

I know my warm home awaits me

as my brisk walk takes me back there.

Jean Kay
