Sunday Horseshoes in the Park

The squeaking of a swing

Geese honking

A motor boat growling

Dogs barking

Skateboards clacking

The rush of vehicles on the bridge

Hummingbirds brawling

A mother scolding a child

Cedars swaying

Daises in the grass

Cherry trees blooming

Teenagers posting videos

Gulls gliding

Families fishing

A balloon escaping a birthday party

A date in progress

A horseshoe park with 36 pits

and no one playing.

One gets the idea that horseshoes were a big deal here,

a long time ago,

in the days of canasta and bowling

There are even bleachers!

Imagine that. Horseshoe spectators!

What was said while they watched?

A lost poetry, for sure.
