People-Watching

People-Watching

I could hear the wheels of the horse-drawn carriage

As the sound drowned out the white noise of the waterfall.

The roof of the porta-loo was caving in

A sign that some people didn’t appreciate it in the park.

I saw a curtain being drawn across the street

An attempt of the neighbors to keep the noise at bay.

Not far from the waterfall, I sat on a half-folded sheet

Watching all the life in this part of the city.

A group of kids were getting compass lessons from their father

A fun family outing they’ll remember fondly some day.

Somewhere behind me, I heard a group of girls

Sharing gossip on a park bench.

Not far from there was a gardener selling spinach

Among other home-grown goodies he had nurtured.

People-watching is my favorite staple of living in the city

It feeds my soul to see who my neighbors are.
