Sunday afternoon, Roundhay Park

Sunday afternoon, Roundhay ParkThe last day of the summer holidays…
warm, sunny and showery.
Walking and scooting round the lake,
having a good time and
eating ice cream,
feeding the ducks and
holding hands,
looking at the clouds and
drawing pictures.

With two cats in the yard, life used to be so hard
Now everything is easy, ’cause of you…

Late August, the leaves seem more black than green.
I don’t want to go in the woods when they are like this.
Flies buzzing.
Heavy and sweet smells of rotting.
