A Walk In The Park by Daginne Aignend

Together, walking the dogs in the village park
The dim sun is spreading a diffuse light
Slowly dissipating the chill morning haze

The dogs are chasing a gnawed tennis ball
A whirl of autumn leaves, a colored tableau
Effusing the fragrance of fungus and herbs

Acorns are covering the humid soil
I wonder if the rabbits would eat them
A variation on their humdrum dandelion diet

Oh, this wonderful autumn sentiment

Your voice is interrupting my musings
There is something you need to tell
Suddenly I feel needles of ice twinge my skin

It happened a few months ago, exhaustion
This awful disease put its claws in you
Your brave smile, telling me you’ll fight it

I knew, it would be an early winter.
