Walking at the Park

At East Cobb park in the heat of the day Shadows dance like fairies at play The Sun stood out in bold relief In the sunny meadow along the creek. Bird song floated on the breeze Squirrels chatter from tree to tree I hurry, saunter and stroll along In love with the day so bright and strong Almost to the field on Robinson road I pass a lady her dog in tow She smiled as we passed and said to me Your friend is waiting for you I see She waved a hand and so did I No time for us to stop and chat Not with the covid hanging about We wear a mask except at the park We can walk there and stay far apart Our days are not like they used to be Then we stopped with our friends And chatted with ease But we’re hanging in and holding our place With care and patience we’ll win the race

You are lucky that there is a park where you can remove the mask. Here, you can be arrested anywhere without a mask, even inside your car.

Wow, I would like it to be mandatory to wear a mask. That’s the only place I go without a mash. It’s a large park and you don’t need to be near anyone. Of late people are wearing masks in grocery stores. That’s the only place we go other than the park. The Governor still doesn’t mandate masks but I think people are deciding its for the best.

@RubyHawk gee, I like that place where I can walk without a mask since only few people are there. Here, public places are always crowded. I just don't know with parks, there's not one near here.

@Alexandoy We would wear a mask if There wasn’t plenty of room. I wouldn’t take any chances. I’m sorry you don’t have a nearby park.

I wished I could have explored more parks there when I was there couple of years ago. I see that you have lots of parks there to go to and enjoy nature for yourself.

We do, we used to go to all of them but lately we only go to the nearest one. It has a long walking trail through the woods.

@rsa101 Parks near us might not be what you think. There don’t have carnival rides or anything like that. Some have a few swings for children but that’s about it. In most parks we have trees and long walking trails and a few benches.

That's lovely and goes well your photo. You give me a much sweeter description of Atlanta than the airport folks.
