Your prompt for today is simply to take a walk. Make notes — mental or otherwise — on what you see on your walk, and incorporate these notes into your poem

Walking down the avenue
I see the cars whiz past me
Ice-cream stalls nearby
Friends waving Hi and Goodbye

I walk a little further
A mother holds the hand of her kid
The fruit vendor looks insipid
As the weather grows more torrid

Listening to the honks and
The bell ring of Rickshaw puller
I enter the park
Where I always go for a brisk walk

While I walk
I observe the green grass
And the tall trees
Enjoy the melody of the birds

I also watch children
Engrossed in their games
Hear aged people talk about politics,
Present generation and their bygone days

In the park boulevard
Serenity dawns on me
The world despite the chaos
Looks pristine to me

A walk on the boulevard rejuvenates me!
