The poetic city: Riding the cartwheel in Audubon Park

Riding the Cartwheel in Audubon Park  



Walking the walk 

In Audubon Park 

I watch the girl 

As she jumps and dips 

Twirls and skips 

Beside her father 

In perfect joy 

She executes 

The perfect cartwheel.


Then disappearing 

Around the bend 

Of the circular walk  

She leaves behind

Her perfect cartwheel

Where it rolls and grows 

Soars and swells

To take its place 

Among the galaxies 

Spiraling though time

Taking me with it


Along for the ride
