a minute in the park

the avenue under the elms central park

scraped knees and dirty hands
a little girl’s cry
a dad with her daughter hoisted on his shoulders
two cones of ice cream

an alarming shriek from behind him
a heart that stopped momentarily
soothing words and wiped tears
fifty pesos out of his wallet

ooh shiny shiny shiny coin
boo-boo, ouchie,  tears!
yummy yum yum chocolate ice cream

Writing 101, Day Nine: Changing Moccasins — Point of View For today’s assignment, write a scene at the park. Up for a twist? Write the scene from three different points of view.

I’m a day behind because of real life duties! Happy father’s day to all dad’s especially mine whom I love very much. 😥 I attended a debut last night and almost cried when the debutante had their father-daughter dance. WHY MUST WE HAVE EMOTIONS? 😦
